Does everyone know that the MA Registry changed their policy and no longer sends out reminders for license renewals? So check your license and note your calendar, Blackberry, etc. when it is time to renew your license within the next 5 years!
I realize costs are getting cut everywhere and this saves a lot in mailing costs but...I think a lot of drivers are going to forget over the course of up to 5 years.
Maybe the Seekonk Town Clerk's Office could put a one line reminder on one of their annual mailings - certainly not THEIR responsibility but it may help jog a few people's memories...who needs the hassle of an expired license? Just like remembering Daylight Saving Time - some people always forget even with the media bombardment.
From the RMV website: Renewing Your License
Is your license up for renewal?
Be Sure to Check Your License Expiration Date!
The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles will no longer mail out renewal notices. Be sure to renew at least seven days before your birthday to ensure that you receive your new license before your old license expires.
You may be able to renew online instead of in line. The RMV express lane is always open.
Your Massachusetts license is valid for a maximum of five (5) years and expires on your birthday. You may renew your license up to one (1) year prior to the expiration date by going to any RMV full service or license express office. You may also be eligible to renew your license online.
The temporary photo-imaging license you receive during your renewal is valid for 30 days, and your new Photo-Imaging License will be mailed to your address of record.
