Here at Aceable, we help people get their driver licenses. And since there's a listicle for everything these days, we thought we'd make one for driver license designs, ranking them worst to best.

A note about driver licenses: There's lots of restrictions when it comes to designing them due to a recently passed Act of Congress called Real ID. This act requires state IDs, or driver licenses, to have tons security features that they didn't have before -- so if your license design has changed in the last few years, that's probably why. While not all driver licenses are currently Real ID compliant, state governments are working toward it because citizens boarding an airplane will be required to have Real ID by 2020.

In short, don't take these driver license design rankings too seriously. The design is less important than what they enable you to do (drive, duh.) But if your state ranks at the top of the list, definitely brag about it. Now on to the rankings!
