Drivers License and Registration Fees to
Increase 25 Percent on September 1

If you drive a car, you will pay more to get or renew your license and register the vehicle. If you own a boat, an ATV or other vehicle, it will cost you more not only to register them, but to transport them as well, as fees on trailers will go up.

The motor vehicle fee hikes will hit Long Islanders the hardest because cars are not a luxury, they are an everyday necessity. People depend on them to get to work, go to school, shop and get around their communities. I voted against every one of these tax and fee increases. New Yorkers clearly have had enough.”
