Fees Policy

This section provides the Registry of Motor Vehicles’ current fees policy.


Fees are payable by check, money order, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, or debit card. If paying by check, make checks payable to "MassDOT".


Disabled veterans should contact the Medical Affairs if they wish to have their license fees waived.


The customer has the following options for prepaying road test and license fees:

1.  Pay all license fees when he/she applies to take a learner’s permit exam at the RMV Service Center.

2.  Pay only for the learner’s permit exam at the service center and pay the remaining fees over the telephone with a credit card when scheduling the road test.

3.  Class D and M road test and license fees can also be paid online using the “Pay My Road Test/License Fees” transaction. This can be done before or after a customer passes the road test and will eliminate the need to visit a service center.


After passing the road test and if all fees have been paid, the permit will be stamped in the Validation section and immediately serve as a temporary license while the permanent license is mailed.
