“Everyone knows frustrating it can be to spend time at the MVC on the last day of the month,” Senator Bucco said. “What we want to do with this is measure is take that busiest day and spread it out over the rest of the month.”
The bill, S-2564, would change expiration dates on driver’s licenses to the day of an individual’s birthday, rather than the last day of the month.
The legislation was specifically written with the intent to reduce the lines and wait times at Motor Vehicle Commission offices throughout the state. Officials already encourage drivers to get their business done during off-peak, mid-month periods. However, this legislation would codify that practice to shorten lines for people who still might wait until the last day to renew their license.
“I truly think this change will make the whole experience of getting a license renewed easier for everyone involved,” Senator Bucco said. “Drivers won’t have to wait in outrageously long lines, and MVC employees won’t have to deal with a flood of customers on the last day of the month.”
