DES MOINES, IOWA (AP) -- Iowa drivers will be able to renew their driver's licenses online under a bill signed into law by the governor.
Governor Terry Branstad signed the bill Wednesday. It allows drivers between 18 and 72 to renew their driver's licenses through the state Department of Transportation's website without passing a vision test. The bill also extends the time licenses are valid from five years to eight years.

Drivers previously could only renew their license at a county treasurer or DOT office. Branstad says the law will save Iowa residents time.

Iowa Department of Transportation Director Paul Trombino stood with the governor Wednesday and called the measure a top priority. He says the new online system will be available this summer.
