North Dakota driver’s license fee hike (SB2244) sent to Governor

The North Dakota House sent a driver’s license fee hike to Gov. Doug Burgum Wednesday, March 13, even as critics decried the move as a tax increase.

Senate Bill 2244 doubles the fee for commercial and noncommercial driver’s licenses from $15 to $30. Noncommercial licenses are good for six years — elderly drivers must renew every four years, however — and commercial ones are good for four years.
