Senate Passes DMV Registration Renewal Charge Bill

March 5, 2008

The Senate passed legislation Wednesday charging those who come
into a Department of Motor Vehicles customer service center to
renew their vehicle registration $5 more than those completing the
transaction online, over the phone or by mail.

The House passed the measure earlier this week. Drivers could get a $1 discount for renewing their registration online and another $1 discount for renewing it for more than one year at a time.

The bill also would extend the term of a driver's license from five years to eight years. The cost, $4 per year, would remain the same. The goal is to decrease the traffic in the DMV's 74 customer
service centers.
