I got a renewal form for the license and registration for a flat-bed trailer. There is a $4 modernization fee per vehicle by the department of motor vehicles. What is that for?
In 2008, the Kansas Legislature approved the fee for the Department of Revenue Division of Motor Vehicles equipment modernization fund, according to Douglas County Treasurer Paula Gilchrist.
All Kansas counties operate on the DMV’s mainframe computer. The fee will help pay for a technology upgrade to the system. A sizable portion of the fee will be dedicated to the federal mandate requiring that one consistent form of photo identification is in place.
