Effective, August 1, 2007, the Division of Motor Vehicles no longer issues a permanent driver's license as a result of HB 253.
If you have a permanent license issued prior to August 1, 2007 *, you must return to the Division every five years to renew the license. The fee for this is $15.00. Permanent license holders who have a motorcycle endorsement on their license will be charged an extra $8.00 fee for that endorsement.
Whenever a permanent license is suspended or revoked, it is changed to a Class D license upon reinstatement and the individual will no longer be able to obtain a permanent license.
* If you are a permanent driver license** holder, the fee for a 5-year permanent driver license is $15 and will increase at a rate of $3 per year, not to exceed 8 years or a $24 fee. See chart below
5-year driver license - $15.00
6-year driver license - $18.00
7-year driver license - $21.00
8-year driver license - $24.00
** As of August 1, 2007, no new permanent
driver licenses will be issued.
