What is the cost to renew a driver's license in Louisiana?

I moved to New Orleans about five years ago. About a week ago, I was pulled over for having a broken taillight. Thankfully, I didn’t get a ticket, and the officer even pointed out that my license is set to expire in a month. I definitely need to renew that so I don’t run into any problems later on. How much does it cost to renew a driver’s license in Louisiana?

If you’re 69 or younger, the fee is $32.75, but if you’re 70 or older, the fee drops to $18.75. All driver’s licenses are valid for six years from the date of issuance.
