North Carolina DMV reminding motorists of higher fees

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles is reminding motorists that fees for many driver and vehicle services are going up in 2016.

The higher fees were approved by the General Assembly, marking the first fee increases in 11 years. The legislation applies to vehicle titles and registrations as well as driver licenses on or after Jan. 1, 2016.

For example, Standard Class C driver licenses and ID cards will increase by $1 for each year issued, making an 8-year license or ID $40 and a five-year license or ID card $25.

The division says customers should plan to complete online DMV business prior to closure at 9 p.m. on Dec. 31. The DMV’s website returns to service at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 1 with the new fees in effect.
