OUPV License
Can anyone tell me how do you pay the government fee for the OUPV license. I was told to go to but it is not exactly clear which form to use. Thanks.

Still have questions. The 3Bs school says I have to pay $145. That is not a choice given, only 100, 90, 95, and 50.

Re: OUPV License
There are two fees is original " Evaluation fee" $100.

The other is an " issuance" fee $45.00.

I don't know if the "issuance fee" pops up in subsequent pages..after you fill out the form and hit $100. and go to the next page or not ?

The 1st page doesn't take your credit you can probably cancel the transaction if you don't see the $45.00 fee in subsequent pages and call them for clarification

I've always used a consultant and just sent the checks and documents to him.

Sending in the paperwork and the money might be the most confusing part. Flunking the physical was the easiest part.
