BATON ROUGE - Louisiana will have a six-year driver's license.

Currently, drivers must renew their licenses in the state every four years. A bill by Republican Sen. Dan Claitor, of Baton Rouge, will change the renewal period to six years.

Gov. Bobby Jindal signed the bill Friday. The change kicks in July 1, 2015.

The fee for a basic license will grow from $28.50 to $42.75 to cover the extra years of renewal. Fees for other licenses also will increase, with the amounts varying based on type of license.

Other handling fees also can apply, depending on where the license is renewed.
