The Massachusetts DMV

Massachusetts License Bureau Requirements

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation, or MassDOT, serves as the license
bureau for all cities and towns in Massachusetts. This license bureau was created
in 2009 by governor decree, and served to streamline the previous separate
transportation agencies that had been operating in the state. MassDOT is now in
charge of Mass Transit, Highway, Aeronautics, and the Registry of Motor Vehicles.
Specifically, the Registry of Motor Vehicles is the license and registration bureau
for all vehicle and aircraft in the state. This includes overseeing inspection
stations for both non-commercial and commercial vehicles.

Massachusetts Licensing Bureau One Of The First In The Nation

The state of New York was the first state to require owners to register their
automobiles. This began in 1901, as roads in the northeast became clogged with
autos, pedestrians and horse drawn carriages. Massachusetts quickly followed New
York by requiring registration plates in 1903, as well as driver licensing.
Massachusetts officials had already formed a Commission of Inquiry, whose purpose
was to report on the condition of the many roads. The origins of the MassDOT can be
traced back to this Commission.

Today the MassDOT, or license bureau, is available online. Their site has extensive
listings and links including information on driving evaluation programs, elder
driver workshops and information on obtaining commercial licensure. Their site also
offers online quizzes and courses, tips for saving fuel and a car-buying guide.

Different Licenses For Qualified Operators

Massachusetts requires special licensure for the operation of school buses,
motorcycles and commercial vehicles. For people interested in getting a CDL
license, MassDOT offers a written test that must be passed in order to get a permit.
A CDL permit is good for two years. A person who then applies for a commercial
driving license must pass both a written and a driving test.

When taking the road test, the driver has to supply the commercial vehicle. The
driver also has to obtain a valid medical certificate from MassDOT. If someone has
obtained a CDL license in another state, the license bureau allows it to be
converted to a Massachusetts CDL license as long as certain criteria are met. The
criteria includes proof of two years driving experience, copy of driving records and
verification of employment. Massachusetts is considered one of the toughest states
when it comes to CDL licensure, along with California.

Massachusetts License Bureau Allows Online Transactions

The MassDOT has made many transactions available online. This was a move
specifically created to cut down on wait times at local branch offices. License
bureau renewals, duplicates and permits can all be done online. Residents can also
fill out a change of address, request driving records and pay citation fines online.
Massachusetts citizens can also conduct registration renewal and duplicate requests
right from the comfort of their own home. The MassDOT website has forms and manuals
that can be downloaded for quick processing. The Massachusetts license bureau has a
Twitter account and maintains its own blog, both of which can be accessed on their
home site.

New Mexico License Bureau: So Easy a ILLEGAL Immigrant Can Do It

If you are looking for a state license bureau to obtain an easy drivers license you might try the state of New Mexico. It appears the state liberal democrats recently passed legislation allowing the continuance of drivers license for ILLEGAL immigrants.

It appears the New Mexico legislation doesn’t understand what the word Illegal means. While honest Americans are, obeying the laws, providing social security numbers, reporting taxes, and being penalized at every turn, the illegal immigrants keep bypassing the system.

The only measure to counter act this ruling is to drop your social security number, learn Spanish, have no paperwork and apply for an Illegal immigrant drivers license yourself. If thousands would apply this technique and bombard the license bureau office, they may get the message.

The cost to process and handle the ILLEGAL immigrants drivers license is in the Millions of dollars. This of course is being paid by the honest hard working US citizens of New Mexico.

100 MPG: No Drivers License Needed

In today’s economy with gasoline reaching $4 per gallon consumers are looking for ways to save money. There are several states that offer unrestricted regulations on Mopeds. There is no drivers license, license plate, insurance, title, or helmet required to operate a moped in several states. The states of Montana, Virginia, North Carolina and West Virgina are considered some of the states where anyone can operate a Moped without regulations or drivers license required. Considering the cost of drivers license, insurance, license plates and other DMV fees, along with the mileage per gallon sometimes reaching 100 mpg, people are looking into other means of transportation.

Some states require only drivers license to operate mopeds or scooters. There are a few states that are now considering to lessen the rules and regulations, in the events of recent economic conditions and the rise of gasoline prices, on small scooters, electric bicycles, mopeds and even golf carts.

Visit your local license bureau website and check out the rules and regulations on small scooters and mopeds. Check your local craigslist or ebay for used or new ones for sale. You may want to invest in one if the gasoline prices continue to rise.

Using Your State License Bureau Online

Using Your State License Bureau Online Service

In today’s economic times a consumer needs to save every penny they can. With the
soaring prices of food and gasoline it only makes sense to do as much of your
running around online.

When getting your license plates renewed for that car, truck, motorcycle, or
recreational vehicle, many state license bureau’s offer simple easy online renewals.
Go to your state DMV license bureau website and look for the link that reads ‘renew
online’. Many states require you to login or register a user name and password to
access your records for their online services. Never choose your social security
number or important numbers for your password or user id. Most state online license
bureau offices charge a small fee if you renew your license plates with a credit
card. If you have a checking account you can save these charges and give your bank
routing number along with your account number and pay by check. If proof of
insurance is required to renew your license plates, most states simply require you
to list your insurance company and policy number. Also if you plan on keeping your
vehicle, renew your license plates for multiple years if possible in your state,
which will save you money.

If you are renewing your drivers license, in most states, you will have to renew
them in person at your local license bureau office.
