Baton Rouge -- House lawmakers have given the thumbs up on a six-year driver's license.

Right now drivers need to renew their licenses every four years.

The bill approved Tuesday would change the renewal period to six years.

The Senate has backed similar legislation. The two chambers must agree on a final version before the change could be enacted.

If the bill becomes law, the fee for a basic license would grow from $28.50 to $42.75 to cover the extra years of renewal.
