HB 512 - Drivers license testing fees

HB 512 - Drivers license testing fees

Phil Haunschild
February 13, 2018

Bill description: HB 512 would raise the cap on charges for skills tests by commercial driver schools.

Rating: +1

Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market? 

HB 512 would raise the cap on fees for a Class D drivers-license skills test from a fixed $24 to a cap of $35 and the fee for a motorcycle-endorsement skills test from a fixed $10 to a cap of $25. These changes would not increase the cut taken by Idaho government. This would allow the private companies to set a fee that better reflects their costs of operation.
