No-test time could extend for expired driver’s license


Mississippi residents could get a longer period to renew expired driver’s licenses without having to take a test.

The state House and Senate have passed a bill that says a license could be expired for up to five years before a person would have to take a test to renew it. Under current law, a test is required if a driver’s license has been expired 18 months.

The bill goes to Republican Gov. Tate Reeves.
