MO drivers license fees could rise

Tuesday, 28 May 2013 07:18 Published in Local News

 Missouri residents renewing their drivers' licenses or registering motor vehicles could pay more under a bill awaiting the governor's approval.

Current law allows local fee offices to charge $2.50 for licenses that expire in three years and $5 for a 10-year license. But a measure passed by lawmakers this month would double those charges.

The fee charged for annual vehicle registration would also increase to $5. For vehicles required to be registered every other year, the new fee would be $10.

The fee increases are part of a broader transportation measure awaiting a decision by Gov. Jay Nixon.

The addition would add about 70 acres to the existing cemetery.
