West Virginia Driver's License May Cost $100

West Virginians may have to pay $100 to get a driver's license in the near future.

The director of the Division of Motor Vehicles said we may have to pay for equipment needed for the federal Real ID Act.

The increase will used for computers the DMV needs to link with with a national data base, which will cost the state between
$60-million and $100-million.

The director said there doesn't appear to be any federal funds available to help any states.

Under the new law, you will need a Real ID card for air travel, open bank accounts and apply for any federal benefits.
