Driver's license fees increase 25 percent

TRI-COUNTY AREA—As of Sept. 1, driver’s license fees increased at Departments of Motor Vehicles across the state.
Julie Betts, Yates County clerk, explained that the registration fee for a regular (Class D) license went up from $50 to $64.50. Despite the increase, she added that it would probably mean less money for the DMV. Betts explained she sees the increase discouraging people from registering vehicles if they have more than one.
She said that the increases in driver’s licenses is 25 percent. Betts said the increases for the other types of licenses include Class C (for cabs and delivery) going up to $112.50 and Class CDL (commercial) going up to $164.50.
Linda Compton, Schuyler County clerk, called it a “substantial increase.” She added that if a person’s license expired before Sept. 1 and still needs to renew it, they will pay the $50 fee.
Other increases are in the works. Compton said the state is talking about remaking license plates and charging people $25 for the new plates.
“There’s not going to be a choice,” she said. “When people renew they’re going to have to get new plates. This is on top of the registration increase.”
Another future increase is just that, registration fees going up from $40 to $55 in April. Betts said the registration increase happens every eight years.
Both Betts and Compton added that no matter the increase, the county still keeps 12.7 percent of all fees processed at the DMV. Compton encouraged people to renew though the county, and not just mail it in to the state.
