Driver's license exam fees see increase in 2018

AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - Driver's license exam fees have increased in Maine.

Class C non-commercial driver's license exams are $35, which is $25 more than last year.

Legislation was passed last year to increase fees to help pay for infrastructure improvements.

The motorcycle and moped learner's permit and road test fee was also hiked to $35.

Reexamination fees for some licenses rose from $5 to $35.

"That fee, by the way, had not been raised since 1977. Because they're (the legislature) reluctant to raise fees, you see something like the reexam fee not being raised for 40 years. That five dollars wasn't even covering the cost of the paperwork," said Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap.

The revenue will be put into the state's Highway Fund.

Class A, B, and C commercial driver's license exams doubled from $35 to $70.
