Pa. driver's licenses, motorist fees rise

Published On: Apr 02 2014 11:03:37 AM EDT

Fees in Pennsylvania to get a driver's license, certificate of title and a range of other records are now more expensive.
The fees went up Tuesday as part of the major transportation funding law Gov. Tom Corbett signed in November.
Under the law, fuel taxes and motorist fines and fees are rising to boost the state Department of Transportation's spending on highways, bridges and mass transit by about $2.3 billion a year, or 40 percent.
Taxes and fines rose in January.

Tuesday's increases included driver's licenses doubling to $27.50, certificates of title rising from $22.50 to $50, driver and vehicle information requests from $5 to $8, certified records from $10 to $30 and manufacturer and dealer notifications from $3 to $5.
Many more fees will rise on July 1.
