The Oregon Department of Transportation said Tuesday that fees for multiple services including a getting a driver’s license or ID card, taking a driver’s test or renewal of vehicle tags will go up Jan. 1. A handful of the increases are more than double the current fee.

ODOT said the fee increases are due to the passage of House Bill 2100 in the Oregon Legislature. The bill is aimed to help DMV recover costs and temporarily avoid service reductions, ODOT says.

Some of the increases are significant. A Class C driver’s skill test goes from $9 to $45. The cost for a commercial driver’s skills test more than doubles from $70 to $145. And the cost for an original commercial driver’s license goes from $75 to $160.

ODOT says even though the driving skills test is increasing to $45, it costs the DMV $123 per test to implement it.

Some fee increases are small, by comparison. The cost of an original Class C non-commercial license goes from $60 to $64, but a renewal goes from $40 to $54. A Class C knowledge test increases from $5 to $7.

According to ODOT, “Statutory fees recovered by Oregon’s DMV have not kept pace with the actual cost to deliver services. Most DMV fee increases over the last 20 years have gone to transportation projects at the city, county, and state levels, not to DMV operating costs. The 2024 increases will help us recover costs, but do not make up the gap.”

Other fees such as vehicle registration and the road usage charge, will see their fourth and final step increase Jan. 1 as part of the House Bill 2017 transportation investment package, ODOT said.

Here is a full chart of the fee increases coming in 2024.
