My daughter took her training class a few weeks ago and intends to get her permit. I decided to hand her a check for Chanukah to cover her expenses. She lives in Portsmouth, VA so I called the Clerk of the Circuit Court to find out what the fee is. Only $15.00!!
For comparison, I paid $50 two years ago in the adjacent city of Chesapeake; that's the maximum they are allowed to charge according to state law.
