RMV suspends renewal reminder service


In 2008, the Registry eliminated courtesy mailings in an effort to save money at a time of looming budget constraints. The Registry introduced a new electronic renewal notification service the following year.

According to a 2009 press release on the RMV website, the subscription service would expand license renewal notifications via phone, text and emails at no cost to taxpayers. The service would be free, because the state was partnering with a Marlborough electronic messaging firm called Sendza Inc., with reminders sponsored by Massachusetts businesses.

A call to the number listed on Sendza’s website was not in service.

On Wednesday, Danvers police posted on Facebook and Twitter a reminder to residents to check the expiration date on their driver’s licenses.
