DRIVER LICENSE HISTORYInteresting Facts about the Driver License Division The Bureau of Driver License Services was created on January 1, 1934, when Utahofficially adopted the “Uniform Operator’s and Chauffeurs’ License Act.” (Prior to this,the State of Utah had no driver license law.)o This act required that “every operator of a motor vehicle shall not drive anymotor vehicle upon a highway in this state unless such person was licensed to doso”. Originally, the Bureau of Driver License Services was an agency within the State TaxCommission. The first license in Utah was issued on December 5, 1933. It cost 25 and was good untilrevoked. It was printed in blue on white paper. The application card was 6” x 3½” and only asked for name, address, brief description, afew questions and a signature. No examination was given until January 1935, when the eye test, written test, and anoccasional road test was given. The ‘good-until-revoked’ licenses were issued until December 31, 1935. Beginning January 1, 1936, the law was changed to have the license expire three yearsafter issuance (not on the birthdate.) The fee was still 25 . One of the biggest changes came in 1951 when the Bureau of Driver License Servicesmoved from the State Tax Commission and became an agency within the Department ofPublic Safety. In 1980, the state decided to reward ‘good drivers’ by developing a system for theapplication to renew their license through the mail. Services became a full-fledgedDivision and renamed the Driver License Division. The Division began issuing a commercial driver license in 1989. The Division began offering more online services including MVR’s and appointments. In January 2010, the Division and the Citizens of Utah started a 5-year process thatrequired all Utah drivers had to bring in their identification documents once again. Thisprocess was a beginning step to meet the Licensing practices for the Federal Real ID Act. January 2010, the Division suspended the Renewal By Mail Program. February 13, 2013, the Division was notified by the Department of Homeland Securitythat Utah meets the Licensing practices of the Federal Real ID Act. April 2013, Driver License reinstated the Renewal By Mail Program and started offeringa new service of Renewal By Internet. In May 2015, the Division began offering online CDL MVR services to authorized driversand employers.Did you know the Driver License Division is not part of the DMV?Our friends at the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) can assist you at dmv.utah.gov.Utah Driver HandbookVersion: June 2015
