PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Islanders now have more ways to pay their bill at the Division of Motor Vehicles.

The DMV says it now accepts Visa credit cards, in addition to MasterCard, Discover and American Express, which the agency began accepting in April. The state recently reached a deal with Visa to allow its cards to be used at DMV offices.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee says the move is part of his administration's efforts to make the DMV more customer-friendly.

The state says there is a minimum service fee of $1.50 per transaction when using a Visa card. Transactions that exceed $64 will have a 2.35 service fee applied.

Debit cards are not accepted at the DMV.
