Anyone else get this email? If so, how annoyed are you that your Maryland drivers license that you have had for years wont be “real” soon?…and that the Maryland Department of Transportation is threatening you with “Failure to respond may result in further action against your Driver’s license or Identification Card” in their first and only outreach with this issue at this point.
Here is additional information noted in the email:
Now I understand this is a federal requirement…but dang…could we not have found a better way to do this without threatening people that “further action against our driver’s license or ID card” would happen.
Here is the link for those that may need it: http://license.mva.maryland.gov/CheckList/default.aspx
I went here to verify the information was correct: http://www.mva.maryland.gov/realid/realidlookup.htm…and yep…it is…with the same threat against my ID:
I am very curious how many people will get messed up by this new law here in Maryland…and if the Governor decides a nicer approach to the issue will be best going forward…or will he decide that one of his departments threatening “further action against our driver’s license” is the right approach going forward. Stay tuned…as I get more notifications…I will be sure to share them here.
