In an effort to improve customer service and reduce wait times in regional branch offices minor changes have been made to the expiration dates on some Maine licenses. A portion of license holders due to renew have been selected as eligible recipients to obtain a license valid for 4 years instead of 6. By staggering the duration of drivers licenses, BMV will be able to level out the demand for license renewal services. The price per year remains a fee of $5.
