My insurance agent just called. She wanted to make sure I knew that the Registry of Motor Vehicles is no longer sending notifications of renewal of drivers licenses. So, if you depended on receiving a notification to renew your drivers license, don't. Check your license and make sure it doesn't need to be renewed, and keep track of your renewal date. She says that police officers are now pulling people over and giving tickets for these invalid driver's licenses, and not knowing it needed to be renewed is not being allowed as a defense.

Yeah. I had to bring out my license for some paperwork in Feb/March, and realized that it had expired in January!

Thankfully, once you have paid to renew, your receipt counts as your temporary up-to-date license.

And I don't know when/if Massachusetts stopped doing this. I had to make several updates to my MA license in the first few years I had it, so I didn't pay too much attention to when it would expire.

I know in NYS, they always sent out reminders.

This confuses me.

I receive this warning from friends and family every single year - and I've never received a notification in the mail to begin with.

Really? Last time I had to renew they sent me a "You can do it over the web! We will just use your last picture!"

I've had my license for about 8 years. I swear that I didn't receive a reminder from the RMV the one time I had to renew it so far (~3 years ago), but I remember that my dad used to receive reminders, so I was surprised, but at least I didn't let it expire.
