Missouri driver’s license fees could soon go up (HB584)

The Missouri House has passed a bill to increase fees charged at license offices and it’s now being considered by the State Senate.

Representative Jeff Knight, a Republican from Lebanon, is the author of House Bill 584. The fees charged at license offices haven’t gone up since 1999 but the costs of doing business have.

“The cost of office supplies and everything that we have to do to facilitate an office, the rent, everything, it’s very costly to run them,” said Belle LH Schmidt, who operates seven license offices.
