Question License Fees

Seems like driving should be an unalienable right not subject to fees or tariffs! However, since I do not make the rules 126 dollars were surrendered to the Secretary of State for Challenge's 2013 registration. This included a small additional fee of about 20$ for an environmental plate.

Wondering what others pay both in and out of country for the privilege of driving their motorcars?

Virginia, all licensing fees have recently gone up. Drivers licenses about $50 per year, license plates, about $50 per year which includes the personalized license plate, and annual personal property tax which goes down each year as the vehicle devalues. Our 1997 Toyota Tacoma annual tax was around $180 this year and the 2006 SLK was about $475. Beats walking.

$35 for the license each year plus $10 so that they can make sure I don't have a Check Engine Light, oh, I mean an Emissions Test.

Damn if Delaware isn't a bargain! I've complained because it went up from $10 a year to $40 between 2004 and 2007. That includes the bi-annual DMV inspection too.

our 2011 Camaro 2SS was $475 I think. Not sure what the 2012 Corvette GS will be but it will probably be the most expensive one. The 2012 SLK 250 will be slightly less I think.
