Crooked DMV Employees Across the USA

Fraud at DMV Offices
After reading articles all over the internet on numerous Department of Motor
Vehicles employees being arrested on various charges, makes me wonder just how many
illegal drivers or citizens does the US really have. Most state license bureau
offices issue State Id’s. Its been reported employees of these state run offices are
supplying fraudulent drivers licenses and new id’s. How are we to know if someone
really exists?

This is a major problem and is not just with the entry level employees. Recently a
47 year old supervisor Lori Mann was charged with forgery, tampering with public
records and issuing a false certificate. It leaves one to wonder what all did this
supervisor, with 20 years on the job, do at the license bureau during her time

There is also reports in California that thousands of illegal licenses were obtained
over the years at various different California DMV offices. Not only is this
happening in the offices but several hundred NYPD police officers are charged with
changing car license plates and drivers license numbers on tickets.

Is there any kind of FBI check done on the state license bureau employees?

After reviewing several DMV sites it appears local license branch offices are not
required to do intense background checks on their employees. There are some small
towns and cities the DMV employees are hired without any background check. It should
be mandatory across the US that ALL Department of Motor Vehicle employees submit
fingerprint cards and be cleared by the FBI before gaining employment.

Innocent Consumers Must Comply on a Daily Basis.

All one has to do is read the google news and you will soon learn that the drivers license, drivers test, license plates and various other DMV services are being compromised throughout the US.
The ironic point here is that hard working honest
people are put through the grind every day at their local license bureau branch
office. John Q citizen must produce various pieces of paperwork. If the paperwork is not 100% complete many are forced to leave and return later with the missing papers.
In the meantime dishonest DMV employees are handing out illegal transactions by the thousands.
It is time the DMV state license bureau offices enact tougher screening and rules for their employees.

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.

Department of Motor Vehicles Appointments 101

Department of Motor Vehicles Appointments 101

If you have an upcoming appointment with the department of motor vehicles in your
area, you might think it’s just a quick trip and you’ll be able to dash in and dash
out. However, most of the time, a trip to the DMV is a little more involved than
that. Usually, no matter where you live, the department of motor vehicles is a very
busy place with what seems like never enough clerks to wait on people. Below, you’ll
find some important information and tips to help you survive a trip to the DMV.

Paperwork – One of the most important things you can do is make sure you’ve got all
the paperwork you’ll need for your visit to the department of motor vehicles.
Depending upon what you’re there for, you may need proof of residency, name change
information, ticket or traffic violation papers, or a number of other things. It’s
important that you have everything with you when you come or you could risk losing
your place in line and being unable to get done what you visited the DMV for.

Eye Glasses – Something you might not normally think about bringing is your
eyeglasses. If you have glasses for reading and you’ll be taking a driving test,
you’ll need those eyeglasses to pass the eye exam. If you can’t pass the eye exam
with satisfactory results, you’ll have to come back to the department of motor
vehicles at another time to take a test.

Children – If you’ll be bringing your children with you to the department of motor
vehicles, you should probably bring a few things to keep them occupied. It can be a
long wait and it’s easy for children to become bored and grow restless. Pack a few
books, some coloring books, or handheld games that will keep them occupied as you
wait for your turn at the counter. You know your own children, so make sure to bring
things that they will enjoy and that will keep them out of mischief.

Once you’re prepared, your trip to the department of motor vehicles will be much
smoother and more easy to handle. Just remember to bring all the paperwork you’re
going to need, your eyeglasses (if you wear them) and things to keep your children
occupied. This will make the day go by a little faster, even if the clerks at the
DMV seem to be moving incredibly slowly!
