    New Jersey Lawmakers are considering a bill that will make driver's licenses expire on a driver's birthday. Right now, licenses expire on the last day of the month every four years causing a backlog at the end of the month. (Published Friday, Nov. 4, 2016)

    Birthdays might mean a trip to the Motor Vehicle Commission for some New Jersey drivers under legislation being considered by a state Senate panel.

    The Budget Committee is expected to consider a measure Thursday that changes driver's license expiration dates from the last day of the month every four years to the driver's birthday.

    The legislation is going forward after Gov. Chris Christie suggested the change in August as a way to ease wait times at the state's MVC offices. The change was among a number of recommendations, including the elimination of online transaction fees that Christie proposed in response to customer service complaints.

    A similar bill has been introduced in the Assembly.

    If the senate committee gives its approval, the legislation will go before the full Senate for consideration.
