Department of Licensing increases fees Oct. 1
September 25, 2012
Motorists should prepare for increased driver and vehicle fees from the state Department of Licensing soon.
Starting Oct. 1, the agency is enacting a series of increases authorized by state legislators. Officials said the hikes should help offset operation and maintenance costs for roads, bridges, ferries and other transportation infrastructure.
The fee to receive a driver’s license or state identification card, or to renew a license or ID card, rises from $25 to $45. The revision increases the commercial driver’s license fee from $61 to $85.
Registration fees also increase Oct. 1. The cost for a certificate of ownership application, for instance, rises from $5 to $15.
