Lawmakers agree to 6-year driver's license renewal

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana will have a six-year driver's license. 

Currently, drivers must renew their licenses in the state every four years. A bill by Republican Sen. Dan Claitor, of Baton Rouge, will change the renewal period to six years. 

The Senate voted 37-0 Thursday to send the measure to the governor's desk. The fee for a basic license will grow from $28.50 to $42.75 to cover the extra years of renewal.

Fees for other licenses also will increase, with the amounts varying based on type of license. Other handling fees also can apply, depending on where the license is renewed. 

The change will take effect July 1, 2015, to give the Office of Motor Vehicles time to make the necessary system adjustments.
