DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has recently come up with a new fee structure for annual vehicle registrations.

The new plan will raise registration fees by about $4 when you register in person, or $2 when you register in a grocery store or by mail.

However, the Office of Gov. Greg Abbott sought out a way to reduce these new fees. The office’s Director of Budget and Sales, Drew DeBerry, praised the DMV in a letter, stating, “You also changed the fee structure to afford every Texan the opportunity to pay less then they are charged today — simply by registering their vehicle online.”

If you register online, you are looking at 25 cents less than what you are paying now.

County officials are not happy with the new fee structure. They argue that this will cut into their revenue. However, the DMV says it will help counties slash costs in the long run.

These changes will begin to take effect at the beginning of 2017.
