Online renewal of Wisconsin driver's licenses scaled back

MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker's proposal allowing Wisconsin driver's licenses to be renewed online one time has been scaled back by the Legislature's budget committee.

The Joint Finance Committee voted Wednesday to allow online renewal only for new drivers moving from an instructional permit to a probationary license and then to a regular license.

Walker wanted to allow any driver to renew online one time. But that elicited concerns from law enforcement about drivers going as long as 16 years without a new picture being taken.
