We have investigated the scaling behavior of the quantum Hall plateau transition in double quantum well systems with different interlayer tunneling strengths. The scaling behavior of the localization property is found to be similar between the case when the relevant Landau level (LL) is non-degenerate and the case when two LLs associated with the two layers are accidentally degenerate. In both cases, the scaling exponent k0:4 close to the canonical value is obtained, and it is unaffected by the in-plane magnetic field which changes the interlayer tunneling strength.
