A Kansas House committee is considering a bill that would allow state residents to renew their driver’s licenses for eight years, rather than the current six years.

Members of the House Transportation Committee were supportive of the idea Thursday, saying it was partly in response to long lines at driver’s license offices in the state.

The bill also would allow drivers over 70 to renew their licenses every five years, rather than four years currently required by state law.

However, committee members were open to keeping the four-year requirement for older drivers, and to the possibility of 10-year licenses.
