Driver's license documents required just every 16 years

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Mar 11, 2014

~~<p><strong>QUESTION</strong>: I am a senior citizen and have to renew my driver's license every two years. Last time, it was very frustrating. I finally got all the documents requested and got my license. I noticed that the clerk was scanning all my documents into the computer. That makes me think they have all my information on file. My question, if you know, is, Do I have to take all those documents with me when it's time for me to renew again? My thinking is, they scanned all my stuff, so they should have everything on file. But it's probably safe to take it all there with me.</p>
<p><strong>ANSWER</strong>: Here's good news for drivers 72 and older who have to renew their licenses every two years: If you've already presented all the documents required under the federal REAL ID Act, you do not need to show them again for the next seven renewals.</p>
