Driver's Licenses Changes Readied For 2007 Session
January 2, 2007, 7:24 AM
Legislation is being written that's aimed at changing parts of the requirements to get driver's licenses in South Dakota.
Now, if a youth driver's six-month permit expires for more than 30 days, the youth must take the driver's test again.
State Public Safety Secretary Tom Dravland says a measure being drafted would eliminate that provision, and add a 30-day grace period for a youth to get another instruction permit or a different kind of license.
He says his department got questions from several parents about the current requirement.
Another proposed bill would change language related to a commercial driver's license, bringing the state in line with some federal language such as updating the definition of hazardous materials.
