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 — SB51 — 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.
