Florida Driver License Fees Increase In 2009

Beginning September 1, 2009, certain fees for driver license and motor vehicle services will be changing. These new base fees were established by the Florida Legislature as part of the state’s budget development process.

A combination of vehicle information is used to determine registration fees. They are the registration use, license plate type and class code. The class code is determined by the vehicle weight, body type, vehicle type and registration use.

Customers will be notified of the new fees that are applicable to them via the renewal reminders that they will receive in the mail or at their local offices.
