Rights Vs. Privileges

I had to renew my Driver’s license this year. Went into the RMV (which thankfully has offices open on the weekend so I didn’t need to take time off) waited maybe 2 hours, gave them ONE page of paperwork, got my picture taken, and was given a paper license that was good for one month after my old one expires.

didn’t need it, it took two weeks to get the new one.

Now last year I needed to renew my Mass LTC. I had to take time off of work and submit 3 pages of paperwork. According to law my old permit was good for 90 days after expiration if I was in the renewal process…but all I had to show was an expired permit. I needed almost all of those 90 days as it took SIX MONTHS to get my permit back.

Shameful on how this system works here.

    Guess I’m one of those ‘extremist’ types that views a Driver’s license as an infringement of our rights; definitely not a privilege. The 9th Amendment is clear — we don’t have to list every right.

    You ready to move to Texas yet?
    We just reduced the renewal no class, no proficiency exam required, can be done online. Unfortunately I had to renew before that so I sent mine in the first week of April and had it back the first week in May. Texas gives the poor and Veterans (often a large overlap) a 50% discount on their licenses.
