Over 50,000 driver’s licenses are replaced after a mistake – is yours affected?

There was no comment on what the specific problem of 53,680 bad cards is, reports NBC.

The only way for a driver to know if they are getting a new license is to receive a notification in the mail.

Massachusetts’ Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) said they are sending out new identification cards with a request that drivers on the mailing list destroy their old identification cards.

The problem is related to a specific printer identified by IDEMIA, reports The Boston Globe.

IDEMIA is a Virginia-based company that prints driver’s licenses and ID cards for 36 US states, including Massachusetts.

“We discovered it,” Christopher Doherty, a spokesman for IDEMIA, said in a phone interview with The Boston Globe.

Doherty noted, “It was a quality control thing.”

Massachusetts State Senator Eric Lesser spoke about the lack of transparency in the state’s RMV, saying, “It’s like interacting with a black hole.”

This isn’t the first time in 2022 that Massachusetts RMV has struggled.

On Feb. 15, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) reported that the state’s RMV found that 2,100 drivers had received passing road test results from two test examiners at the Brockton Service Center without doing the road test, ABC reports.

Longmeadow added, “What is the suppliers’ quality control mechanism, does the RMV actually review the work of the suppliers that print?” reports NBC.

Commenting on the matter, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said, “I don’t know exactly what the rules were or what the automated process was about how often they check the printer, but whatever that process is, it needs to be shorter.” be .”
