The newly elected state representative sent out his first email message today, providing information on the state Department of Motor Vehicles' new process for obtaining a new license or renewing an old one.
Here is what he sent, along with some photos of the DMV brochure (Click here for PDF versions):
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
DMV will no longer issue driver's licenses on site. Beginning this spring, people looking to acquire or renew their CT license will go to one of these locations for processing, but will receive their new licenses in the mail within 20 days.
This new system is part of Connecticut's central issuance program designed to reduce fraud. Temporary paper licenses will be issued at the locations for use until permanent ones arrive in the mail.
If your current ID card is still valid, there is no need to replace it with the new card until it expires.
