Notes:
The numbers of learner permits and driver licenses issued are not available in States where N/A is shown. For purposes of this report, when there are combined licenses by endorsement, the licensee has been counted in the highest class license that he/she holds.
CDL = Commercial Driver License.
{ = Some columns have fields containing this symbol, instead of numeric data. The { symbol indicates that the data for these fields have been totaled. The total number appears in the last field in the column containing the { symbol. For example, for Wyoming, the total number of licenses issued for CDL Classes A - C is 5,408.
* For States with an asterisk, see notes below:
Colorado--No fee for renewal of motorcycle endorsement. Minor licenses expire 20 days after 18th birthday; provisional licenses expire 20 days after 21st birthday.
Montana--For CDL, fees are charged based on Type 1 or Type 2, and not by Class. Class A, B, C are a further breakdown of Types 1 and 2.
New Mexico--Persons 75 years or over renew annually at $2.50.
