In Case You Didn't Notice, Vehicle Licensing Fees Went Up

The increases were passed by the 2012 Legislature.

If you didn't notice already, it's costing you a little more to get your driver's license at the Washington State Department of Licensing.

Beginning Monday, the fee for new licenses and renewals is now $45, up from $25.

The license application and examination cost went up from $20 to $35. The permit fee is also increasing from $20 to $25.

These fee increases, passed by the 2012 State Legislature, are required to continue to fund the operation and maintenance of the roads, streets, bridges, ferries, transit systems, and other services that make up the state's transportation system.

A full list of the increases can be found at the Department of Licensing Web site.
