Connecticut officials are warning motorists whose driver's licenses expire late this month to avoid going to Department of Motor Vehicles branches this week because longer lines are expected.

SeleCT ID, the new identity-verification program, begins Tuesday. Customers will have to choose whether they want their renewed license or DMV-issued ID card to be a special, identify-verified card, or a regular ID or license.

The SeleCT ID program is supposed make it easier for residents to get into federal buildings and onto flights. To get one, people need to bring various documents to the DMV to establish an historical record of their identity.

Given the new requirements, wait times are expected to be long at DMV branches and AAA offices, where licenses can also be renewed.
