Beginning this past Monday, October 1, the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration began extending the validity of driver's licenses and identification cards from 5 to 8 years. The conversion to the 8 year driver's licenses will be implemented over the next few years. During the phase-in period, individuals renewing their driver's licenses customers will be assigned a license duration of between 5 – 8 years, depending on the MVA's computer generated selection process.

The number of driver's in Maryland has been steadily growing each year with almost 150,000 new drivers added to the State in the past decade.

    And what about the new rules for moped and motor scooters?

    The three new legislative requirements to operate a scooter are:
    a. A valid driver’s license or a moped/scooter permit (if you have a license, then you do not need a permit?)
    b. A valid title with an MVA issued decal (you need both a title for the scooter, and a decal on the scooter?)
    c. An insurance card
    AND YOU MUST WEAR A HELMET!
