If your Missouri driver’s license expires soon you’ll want to hurry up!
Reports say the cost for processing a three-year driver’s license will increase next month from $2.50 to $6.
For a driver’s license longer than three years, the fee climbs from $5 to $12.
Those are just the fees to process it!
Meanwhile the annual registration fees will increase too, in a similar fashion.
These are the first increases in 20 years. But they’re just telling us that to make us feel better. I still don’t like to pay more money!
It’s all to help privately operated license offices stay afloat in rural areas.
I didn’t realize that unlike other states where a government agency operates all license offices, Missouri allows private companies, to operate the facilities in exchange for a portion of the fees collected.
I think that is very, very weird because yeah back in Michigan everything is run through the state.
This seems like a free for all here.
Just one more thing that makes Missouri….unique.
