Why do drivers licenses for under 21 look different?

Why do they make it vertical? What are the intentions/features behind it?

    Assuming you're in the US, it makes it easier for those selling alcohol (and now tobacco products) to instantly identify persons not of legal age to purchase them.

      As far as I know. Selling alcohol to a minor can cost someone their livelihood. Having an entirely different design reduces error rates.

    Because bartenders need help finding out the under 21 crowd.
