Drivers to Pay More
Florida drivers will have to pay a few more dollars starting today.
To help balance the budget, lawmakers approved several fee increases last spring, including ones related to drivers. Under the law, drivers' license fees will increase from $27 to $48.
License renewals will also increase, going from $20 to $48. And motor vehicle registration fees for new cars bump up from $100 to $225 per vehicle.
Drivers license offices around the state have been swamped the last few days with people trying to beat the fee increase.
