Registration fees rise for motorists in Maine

Bangor Daily News

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine motorists are paying more to register their vehicles with the state.

As of Monday, fees increased by $10 for vehicle registrations, vanity license plates and titles.

Don Cookson of the Secretary of State’s Office said the added fees would generate revenue to support bridge and road maintenance.

The increases stem from legislation earlier this year to raise $160 million over four years to upgrade and preserve Maine’s bridges.

To pay them off, motor vehicle registration fees increase from $25 to $35, titles rise from $23 to $33, and vanity plate fees jump from $15 to $25.
