Illinois license fee set to triple

CHICAGO (AP) -- It'll soon be getting more expensive to drive.

The state of Illinois is set to raise the price of getting a driver's license to $30. The tripled fee goes into effect next week for both new and renewed licenses.

But drivers who want to avoid the higher fee still have time this week to get their licenses for the old price of $10.

The driver's license fee isn't the only increase on the horizon for motorists. Starting Jan. 1, the cost for Illinois' annual license plate registration sticker will jump from $79 to $99.
