GRAND PRAIRIE (1080 KRLD) - If you need to get a new Texas driver's license, a new center opens today in North Texas. 

The new driver license office in Grand Prairie opens for business Monday morning. It's located on North Bagdad Road just south of I-30.

Lonny Haschel with DPS says the new office is much bigger and more technologically advanced than the office in Irving that it replaces.

"It is nearly 12,000 square feet and has the capability to expand to 16 work stations if needed" said Haschel. "And (the center) has new technology."

The 'new technology' is a system that will allow you to get in-line online or via your smartphone. Users can receive text messages indicating what your wait time is so that you don't have to spend all day in the office waiting for your number to be called.
