RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Stricter driver’s license renewal rules for older motorists in Virginia take effect Jan. 1.

According to AAA Mid-Atlantic, a new law requires drivers to renew their license in person starting at age 75 instead of 80. Drivers 75 and older will not be able to renew electronically or by mail.

Also, starting at age 75 drivers must renew their license every five years instead of every eight years. Licensed drivers 75 and older must also pass the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles’ vision requirements or present a vision statement no older than 90 days from an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
