CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Senate has passed a bill to change the driver’s license renewal process.

Sen. Corey Palumbo said the bill lengthens the renewal cycle for driver’s licenses from 5 to 8 years.

The bill also allows for the development of an online renewal process and permits individuals with expiring licenses to be notified electronically.

Under the bill, federally compliant driver’s licenses will cost an additional $10 over and beyond standard fees.

Lastly, military personnel may use current, military-issued, photo IDs as proof of their legal name and identification.

Senate Bill 431 passed unanimously Monday and now advances to the House.
