Bureau of Driver Licensing; Increase of Cost of the Photograph for Photo Driver's License or Photo Identification Card

[31 Pa.B. 5507]

   The Department of Transportation, Bureau of Driver Licensing, pursuant to the authority contained in 67 Pa. Code 73.5(d) hereby gives notice that, effective November 5, 2001, the cost of the photograph associated with the issuance of a photo driver's license or photo identification card will be $5.00.

   Although the cost of producing the Pennsylvania driver's license and identification card has increased during the past six (6) years, the photo fee has remained constant (i.e., $4.00). Additionally, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation recently has deployed a new generation of Photo License Systems across the Commonwealth. This new generation of equipment features the first significant technological and product improvements in more than seven (7) years. Several features have been added to increase durability while taking added steps toward preventing tampering and fraud. These improvements and added steps have increased production costs.Since the overall cost of producing the drivers' licenses and identification cards has increased, there will be a $1.00 increase in the photo fee, effective November 5, 2001.
