New State Laws In 2011

The beginning of the new year brings new laws for North Carolinians.

One focuses on active duty military service members. The new law bans lenders from foreclosing on their homes.

Some changes for drivers are also in effect now. People in their fifties and early sixties will not have to renew their driver licenses as often. A new law moves the age for the eight-year driver licenses from 54 to 66 years old. After age 66, you must renew your driver license every five years.

Motorcyclists under the age of 18 must take a special safety course to get their driver license. They are also no longer allowed to have a passenger.

A new state law also requires insurance companies to cover hearing aids for people under the age of 22.
