Iowa's five- to eight-year driver's license transition: The details

Current state
Significant swings in annual renewal volumes caused by previous changes from two and four year renewals to five year renewals that were not adjusted:
63 percent difference between high years (530K) and low year (275K).
Difficult to efficiently manage resources and maintain service with significant swings.
Cycle will continue to repeat if not altered.
Answer: Carefully! (and with some programming)
Beginning January 1, 2014 the issuance system will
randomly assign
five-, six-, seven-, or eight-year licenses according to
pre-determined percentages
for each year from 2014 to 2018 to achieve equal distribution over an eight year renewal cycle.
System will assign
; can't choose.
Doesn't apply to licenses issued to minors or temporary foreign nationals.
ID cards will be eight years only ($8 total fee).
Commercial drivers licenses (CDLs) are included.
Licenses issued to customers younger than 72 can't exceed customers' 74th birthday (At 72 shift to two year license).
Fees stay at $4 per year for a noncommercial license, $8 per year for a CDL or chauffeur's license, and $2 per year for a motorcycle license.
A roughly equal (and lower) annual renewal volume.
Only a 5% difference between high years (265K) and low year (252K).
Value of annual savings: $1.8M in resource management and production costs; $3.4M in customer travel and time.
Old average: 414K
New average: 259K
Goal: A roughly equal (and lower) annual renewal volume.
Challenge: How do you pour 5 different sized buckets into 8 smaller, equal buckets?
What happens if we don't transition to an equal distribution?
The swings will be even worse:
We'll have three years of almost no renewal activity followed by five years of the same cycle.
That cycle will continue to repeat every eight years.
Senate File 224
Changed the standard term for a driver's license and ID card from 5 to 8 years.

House File 355
Authorized a transition in which driver's licenses and ID cards valid for periods of five, six, seven or eight years are issued to equalize renewal volumes in the future.

Goal: A roughly equal (and lower) annual renewal volume.
