Mississippians can buy four- or eight-year driver’s licenses
Mississippi residents can renew their driver’s license for up to eight years starting Monday, thanks to a bill authored by state Rep. Johnny Stringer and signed into law by the governor.
Stringer’s legislation gives Mississippi drivers a choice of renewing their license for an eight-year or a four-year period. An eight-year license will cost $43, while a four-year license will cost $21; drivers can renew their license within six months before the actual expiration.
“This is one more way to make life easier for all Mississippi residents,” said Stringer, chairman of the budget-writing House Appropriations Committee.
“People have told me for years that they are tired of waiting in long lines to renew their driver’s licenses every four years,” he said.
“Giving drivers a choice will help reduce long waits at driver’s license renewal offices across the state and eliminate a major source of frustration for Mississippians.”
