NYS Motor Vehicle Law Enforcement Fee

The purpose of this fee is to offset costs incurred by New York State Police and DMV in combating insurance-related frauds and crimes. Companies collect this fee on behalf of the State and remit it directly to New York State as required by law. Previously this fee had been $1.00 per registered vehicle and is now increasing to $5.00 as of 6/1/03. Your policy will be automatically updated to reflect this change.
