MOTORISTS WILL PAY MORE FOR DRIVER LICENSE AND MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION FEES STARTING JULY 1.

THE WYOMING DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION SAYS THE INCREASES ARE THE RESULT OF TWO BILLS APPROVED BY THE 2017 LEGISLATURE.

ONE INCREASES THE FEES FOR A DRIVER'S LICENSE, AND THE OTHER INCREASES THE STATE'S PORTION OF MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATIONS.

THE INCREASES WILL REPLACE A PORTION OF THE $25 MILLION IN STATE GENERAL FUNDING THAT LAWMAKERS REMOVED FROM WYDOT'S BUDGET THIS PAST SESSION.

WYDOT RECEIVED THOSE FUNDS EACH FISCAL YEAR TO MAINTAIN AND OPERATE THE STATE'S ROAD AND BRIDGES.

FOR MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATIONS, THE INCREASES DEPEND ON THE TYPE OF VEHICLE.

FOR A DRIVER’S LICENSE, THE FEE WILL INCREASE FROM $20 TO $40.

WYDOT DIRECTOR BILL PANOS SAID THIS MARKS THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1993 DRIVER LICENSES FEES HAVE INCREASED, AND THE FIRST TIME FOR AN INCREASE OF THE STATE'S PORTION OF VEHICLE REGISTRATION FEES SINCE 1975.

NATRONA COUNTY TREASURER TOM DOYLE URGES THOSE WHO HAVE LICENSE PLATES AND REGISTRATIONS EXPIRING IN JUNE TO RENEW ON OR BEFORE FRIDAY AND THEY CAN DO IT THROUGH THE COUNTY'S WEBSITE.
