Many Oregon Department of Vehicle fee increases are going into effect today.

Driver's license and identification cards, renewal of vehicle registration tags and taking a driver's test among other DMV services will see increased fees in 2024.

Officials said the fee increases are a result of legislation passed last year designed to help the DMV recover costs and temporarily avoid service reductions. Plate transfers, replacement plates and stickers, VIN inspections, plate manufacturing, camper/travel trailer/motorhome registrations, and dealer document fees are included in House Bill 2100.

Other fees such as vehicle registration and the road usage charge will see their fourth and final step increase today as part of Oregon's historic House Bill 2017 transportation investment package.

Identification card issuance increases from $44.50 to $47, Class C driver license issuance increases from $60 to $64, motorcycle endorsements increase from $87 to $98, commercial driver licenses increase from $75 to $160, and learner's permits increase from $23 to $40. Most renewal and replacement fees will also increase.

New fees for DMV testing are also going up. The Knowledge Test will cost $7, while the Skills Test will increase from $9 to $45. The Commercial Driver Skills Test is more than doubling from $70 to $145.

Substantial increases take effect today for other vehicle-related transactions with DMV. A license plate transfer increases from $6 to $30, and replacement plates and stickers increase from $5 to $12. The registration period for all new mopeds and motorcycles will be two years beginning today.
