Many Oregon DMV fees are set to increase January 1

Well, who didn’t see this coming? Just in time for the new year your Oregon legislature gave the go ahead to the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to raise rates across the board on just about every facet of driving in Oregon.

DMV services related to licensing, certification, knowledge and skills testing, vehicle inspections and registrations will increase according to Oregon law 2024.

Voting “Yes” for the increase was Representative Dave Gomberg (D-Otis)

Voting “No” against the increase was Senator Dick Anderson (R-Lincoln City)

According to press release form the DMV, “Driver’s license or ID card, renew vehicle tags, and take a driver’s test (among other DMV services) will see increased fees starting Jan. 1, 2024.”

Plate transfer, replacement plate/sticker, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) inspection, plate manufacturing, camper/travel trailer/motorhome registration and dealer document fees are included in the bill.

Other fees, such as vehicle registration and the road usage charge, will see their fourth and final step increase Jan. 1.

  1. That’s right, Don. I did support a modest increase in some DMV fees to keep our rural offices open. For example, a non-commercial license will go from $60 to $64.

    However, I don’t think it is entirely fair to criticize Senator Anderson for opposing these changes. Most were adopted in 2017 as part of the Transportation Investment Package and Dick did not become a Senator until 2021.
