The cost of renewing a driver's license varies by state, renewal term and procedures involved. Renewing a license for an eight-year term costs $47 in the District of Columbia, $32 in Virginia and $28 in Wisconsin, as of 2015.
The expiration period, fees and renewal procedures of drivers' licenses vary by state. A driver's license is valid for four years in some states and eight years in others. Some states require drivers to undergo vision and physical tests before they can renew their licenses. These procedures attract additional fees. In some states, active military personnel are exempt from renewing their licenses.
