SPRINGFIEL, Mass. (WWLP)– It will soon cost you more to register your car and conduct other business at the RMV.
Tuesday night The Registry of Motor Vehicles held its final meeting as part of a series of forums to explain the new fee increases, but only one person showed up to hear about those changes.
Some of the increases include registering a non-commercial vehicle which is going up from $50 to $60. The annual inspections cost will go up to $35 from the now $29 cost and the cost to take the driving road test will go up to $35 dollars from the old price of $20.
The MassDOT says the increases to the inspection and road test fees are going up to off-set a more than 50-million dollar funding gap.
The Department of Transportation also says they are building a new Registry of Motor Vehicle building in Springfield. The DOT says the new building will be bigger than the current Liberty Street location and will be located at Mantone Place.
