New Law Changes Your Driver License Expiration Date

Last Edited:
TRENTON, N.J. -

Drivers in New Jersey won't have until the end of the month to update their expiring licenses anymore.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed a new legislation into law on Friday, June 9th, that changes the expiration date of a license to the driver's birthday every four years.

The bill passed without any opposition and is intended to lower wait times and thin out crowds at the state's Motor Vehicle Commission offices.

The change was among a number of recommendations, including eliminating online transaction fees, that Christie proposed in response to customer complaints.
