DMV Fees Going Up

August 26th, 2009 by flanews

Next Tuesday Floridians will be paying more for a drivers license.

Starting September 1st the price to renew a Florida license will go up from 20 to 48 bucks. Lawmakers voted to raise the fee to help fill a three billion dollars state budget hole. Governor Charlie Crist signed off on the deal. Crist cited semantics, saying at least its not a tax hike.

Id rather not do it but it is better than raising taxes and I think that we have an obligation to balance our budget and live within our means. At least we do that hear in Tallahassee. I wish they did it in Washington, said Crist.

New car registration fees will also go up from 100 to 225 dollars.
