Good drivers get license discounts

The driver’s license agency has a deal for good drivers. Those who renew a license and who have not accumulated more than four points due to traffic violations get the license at half price. That is 5,000 colons. In addition, good drivers are able to renew a license for six years.

On the other hand, drivers who accumulate more than four points have to pay 10,000 colons, about $19. And they can renew for just four years. They also have to go to a driver safety course. A driver can earn a quick four points by going through a red light or failing to keep a child in an appropriate car seat.

Licensing officials also said that the agency will now accept renewals three months before a license expires.
