Eight-year driver's licenses starting Jan. 1

Posted By on Mon, Dec 14, 2015 at 11:59 AM

The state Department of Finance and Administration has announced that the state will issue eight-year driver's licenses starting Jan. 1. They'll cost $40 (twice the four-year license cost of $20). The cost of duplicates, $10, will remain unchanged.

The eight-year license is available when you renew or within a year of renewal. Commercial and state identification cards will remain valid for four years. 

The change in the law is the result of HB1359, now Act 343 of 2015, introduced by state Rep. Jane English of North Little Rock. The new law sets the license fee at $24, but other associated fees bring it to $40, according to DF and A.

    Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union asked Judge Kristine Baker to grant an injunction against four laws passed this year by the General Assembly that would: * Make abortion after 15 weeks riskier by outlawing what the medical profession considers the safest procedure, dilation and evacuation; * Require doctors to inform local police when an abortion performed on a teenager age 14-16 absent any indication of abuse and that police create a record of the teenager's abortion and be provided the fetal remains; * Require abortion providers to ask women seeking an abortion if they know the sex of the fetus, and, if they do, obtain all of their previous obstetrical records to determine if they have a "history of aborting fetuses" of a certain sex, as the lawyer for the state said today in court. * Require notification of a woman's partner — or abuser — that she intends to have an abortion, ostensibly so they can agree on the disposition of the remains of the fetus.
