The United States Army Europe Registry of Motor Vehicles will be increasing the price for USAREUR licenses to $20 and vehicle registration to $35 beginning Oct. 1.
Prices are being increased as a necessity to absorb the costs of personnel, supplies, data processing and equipment, which have grown over the years.
“The fee change will be implemented for all licensing issuances to include initial, renewals, additions to class and reinstatements,” said Staff Sgt. Quinton Franklin, 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron training validation and operations trainer. “We will have the same application with no changes to the process.”
A temporary change to the available types of payments has also been made. Only checks and money orders will be accepted by the 86 VRS USAREUR licensing office until further notice.
“We also do the application for the international driver’s license,” said Senior Airman Christopher Correa, 86 VRS licensing official. “The price of that will not change with the USAREUR license and registrations price increases.”
According to information released by the USAREUR Registry of Motor Vehicles, the registry is a supplementary mission nonappropriated fund entity that does not generate profits but must recover operational costs. The fund can no longer absorb the losses without increasing fees.
