A new study found that the average price of a new driver’s license is about $35,000 — or nearly $25,000 more than the median cost of a car.
The new study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Center for Automotive Research found that average license costs for drivers in the 50 states were $34,788.
That compares to $26,800 in the median for cars, and $26.4 in the lowest income bracket.
In the other 25 states, the average cost of the license is $28,000.
The cost to buy a new license in the U.S. is about 11 times higher than in Europe, according to the study.
The average license cost for a new car is about twice as much as that of a gas station, according the study, which was conducted by the Center on Auto Safety at the University of California, Berkeley.
The study, titled “How much does a new motor vehicle cost?” was conducted last year and is now being released online.
The authors found that in the five states with the most licensing fees per driver per year — Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, and Nevada — the average annual cost of new vehicles was $37,837.
In California, where license fees were the highest, the cost of driving a new vehicle was about $27,000, the study said.
The report also showed that licenses cost drivers about $6,000 less per year in Colorado than they did in Montana.
In Arizona, the cheapest license for drivers was $19,843.
In Idaho, it was $22,400, and in Montana it was about the same.
The study also showed a gap in costs between people who have had their licenses for five years or more and those who have been with their license for only one year or less.
In some states, license costs were less than $1,000 for people who had their license five years ago, while in others, the difference was about four times as large.
In Nevada, license fees for people with licenses between five and 10 years old were about $1.2 million, while those who had licenses from 11 to 15 years old cost about $2.6 million.
In the states that charged a much higher average annual fee, such as Arizona, where fees were nearly four times higher, the gap between people with and without licenses was even larger.
For instance, in Montana, a license costs about $20,000 per year, and for people in that age group, that translates to $42,200.
But for people without licenses, it is about 40,000 dollars per year.
