According to this article on WLB’s news page, they’re changing the format of new licences. It’s nice to see they’re putting some security features into the card.
Previously I think you could probably have printed them out on any ID card printer, making it much easier to make illicit purchases of ammunition and other goods.
Additional features will include:
- Clear core centre panel depicting the licence number and category of weapons
- Raised embossed date of birth of the licensee at the bottom of the licensee’s photograph
- Expiry Date of the licence on the rear of the card in extra large font
