ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is rolling out a new way to help you pinch some pennies.
Originally rolled out for hybrid and electric vehicles the “Mileage Choice Program” has now been opened to fuel-efficient vehicles. This means instead of paying “Highway Use” fees upfront, those enrolled in the program will only be charged for the actual number of miles they drive.
The DMV says this means customers who drive less than 11,600 miles will save money.
“The Mileage Choice Program not only gives customers options; it also serves as an innovative solution to help ensure road users are treated equitably,” said acting DMV Commissioner Linda Ford. “By enrolling in the program, Virginians who drive less will pay less, and payment of their highway use fee will be spread throughout the year rather than paid in one lump sum annually.”
