Washington state enhanced driver’s license fees increase Oct. 1
The increased fees will help fund Washington state’s nearly $17 billion transportation package “Move Ahead Washington” which was signed into law earlier this year.
From KING-5 TV, NBC Seattle:
Here’s what you need to know about the increased fees.
Washington state enhanced licenses and IDs now cost $3 more per year, meaning a six-year license/ID costs $18 more, and an eight-year costs $24 more, according to the Washington State Department of Licensing (DOL). In total, a six-year fee is $42 and an eight-year fee is $56. The fee increase also applies to renewals.
The DOL is also reminding residents that the enhanced license/ID is needed to fly beginning May 3, 2023, to comply with REAL ID.
