In addition, each deputy registrar shall collect a service fee of ten dollars to compensate the deputy registrar for services performed under this section. The deputy registrar shall retain eight dollars of the service fee and shall transmit the reinstatement fee, plus two dollars of the service fee, to the registrar in the manner the registrar shall determine. However, the registrar or an eligible deputy registrar shall not collect the fee prescribed by this section if a different driver's license, commercial driver's license, or nonresident operating privilege reinstatement fee is prescribed by law.
The registrar shall deposit ten dollars of each forty-dollar fee into the state treasury to the credit of the indigent defense support fund created by section 120.08 of the Revised Code and thirty dollars of each fee into the state treasury to the credit of the public safety - highway purposes fund created by section 4501.06 of the Revised Code.
