The renewal of Connecticut’s license plate has been extended, the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles announced Wednesday.
The fee for the license plate, which was originally set to be phased in in 2020, has now been increased to $5.00.
It will take effect in January 2020.
The change was made to comply with legislation passed last year by the state legislature.
The fee increase comes as many residents are seeking to update their license plates and are now looking for ways to protect their privacy.
The Connecticut Department says license plates are currently on a “rolling” basis.
For example, the first time a driver drives in Connecticut, a license plate is not renewed.
That means that, for the next few years, a new plate is issued each year, and then a new one is issued every three years.
The DMV says it will continue to update the system with new information.
