    Vermont's Drivers Licenses Being Updated

    The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles is updating driver's licenses and non-driver identification cards with advanced security features.

    That means licenses and ID cards will no longer be printed during visits to a DMV office starting in July.

    The DMV says the newly designed card will be printed and mailed from a high-security facility.

    Vermonters who are getting a license or renewing one starting this summer will get a temporary paper license or ID valid for 30 days.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    Officials say a secondary form of identification may be required to board a plane or cash a check until the permanent license arrives in the mail.

    Current licenses and ID cards are valid until they expire.
