Security changes are making it harder for West Virginians to get or renew a driver's license and the head of the Division of Motor Vehicles doesn't want residents to take it out on his employees.

Starting Tuesday, residents will have to provide three separate documents to renew or get a new driver's license.

States are requiring residents to present proof of their identification, Social Security number and residency. The documents will be kept on file.

DMV Commissioner Joe Miller says that the new system to get a license evolved out of changes after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

He says West Virginia is about a month ahead of many states that are in this stage of the program because the state's old driver's license system expired.
