RMV_LogoMassDOT’s Registry of Motor Vehicles Division reminds customers of changes to three RMV fees effective July 1, 2014.

Transportation finance legislation passed by the Legislature last year required MassDOT to generate its own additional revenue to help fund future budgets. The plan approved by the MassDOT Board in March makes the following changes:

  • Non-commercial vehicle registration fees for motor vehicles will increase from $50 to $60. There will be no change to commercial registration fees.
  • Annual motor vehicle inspections will increase to $35, up from $29.
  • The road test fee, a one-time fee for the majority of drivers, will increase to $35, up from $20, with portions of the road test revenue supporting improved customer service for first time drivers.

The changes will allow MassDOT to close a projected $55 million budget gap in Fiscal Year 2015, make customer improvements, and invest in the Commonwealth’s transportation system.
