Re: What does it cost to renew your drivers license in your state?

I renewed mine last about 2 years ago. I don't remember the exact price, but I'm positive it wasn't more than $20. I certainly don't recall paying $30+ like you guys.

I'm not sure if this happens when you reach a certain age or if they just changed the law in Indiana, but it used to be that a driver's license had to be renewed every 4 years. The last time I got mine renewed it is good for 6 years now.

Yeah, it just jumped from $21.50 to $33.50. Mary Fallin has to make up for those tax cuts that she has given/wants to give to the wealthy some how.

This state flat out sucks when it comes to proper usage of funds. We got the lottery supposedly to increase the budget to education and not take the place of other funds. We are still at the bottom of the barrel. I heard that the increase in the DL fees were to improve the roads but they suck worse than any roads from here to North Carolina and back to California and we have driven them all without paying tolls. I have also heard that they want to increase the number of tolls here in Tulsa and other places.

I live near Tulsa and read that Oklahoma is tops in the nation for vehicle damage due to the roads.

Mary Fallin flat-out fucking sucks.

I'll be renewing my license next year and I was not aware of the 10+ hike. Thanks Mary Fallin, you fucking monster.

Re: What does it cost to renew your drivers license in your state?

Indiana does a staggered schedule. When you renew, it's either for 4, 5, or 6 years. No idea why or what the stagger depends on.

4-year renewal = $14.50
5-year renewal = $16.00
6-year renewal = $17.50

Once you hit 75, your $11.00 license is only good for 3 years and you re-take the driving test each time. At 85, it's 2 years and $7.00.

My current one was for 6 years, but I really wish it were less. When I renewed last time, the state had installed new facial recognition software which (supposedly) would be used to identify ne'er-do-wells when caught on video or other surveillance means. During a 2-3 year span (which caught me) when you renewed your licence you were required to remove your glasses and adopt a featureless doped-up blank stare for your official photo. They've since got better software so you can allagedly just be yourself now, but for the past 4.5 years I've looked like a stoner. Without "losing" my DL, I have to wait until after my birthday in November this year before I can go in and renew it.

Yes, she is. Getting it renewed for only 4 years at a ten dollar plus hike is ludicrous.

I think I paid something like 45, but I have an enhanced license which allows you to cross the border by land. I think it's like half of that for a regular license renewal.

But that's in Calgary. C$25 is about US$22, and 10 Metric Years is 50 English Years (10 * 9/5 + 32 = 50) making it $0.44 per year. But that's only because of the oil shale subsidy that everybody in Alberta enjoys. If you were to get the same thing in BC it would be closer to 100x that.

FF to 9:58

An Ontario, Canada drivers license is now, $80 for five-years. Then $90 per year for your car's license plate sticker.

That is pretty good, especially for Oregon. Seems like the costs are being passed-on to the CDL folks. But maybe it's like that in most states.
