New law increases driver's license fee by $12

— OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The cost of getting a driver’s license is going up in Oklahoma.

Gov. Mary Fallin signed a bill Monday that increases the fee that Oklahomans must pay to obtain or renew a standard driver’s license by $12, from $21.50 to $33.50. The cost of several commercial drivers’ licenses also is increasing by about $10.

The new rates will be effective Nov. 1.

The fee hikes will generate about $8.7 million annually and will allow the Department of Public Safety to hire more than 20 driver’s license examiners across the state.

The additional revenue will also help pay for upgrades to the DPS communication system, increased costs of its digital driver’s license contract, and for driver’s license testing facility improvements.
