Check your driver’s license renewal date!

In 2009, the Registry of Motor Vehicles discontinued mail notices of pending driver’s license expiration.

They replaced it with an online service which I encouraged people to sign up for.  When I emailed advice of the new service it was widely reforwarded.

If you took that advice, please be advised that the RMV has now also discontinued that service.  There is no program to provide notices at this time.

The Globe quotes a registry spokesperson as saying:

The company providing the e-mail reminder service free of charge for the RMV was sold. We are in negotiation to determine [whether a] new company will continue the e-mail reminder service . . . At the same time, the RMV is exploring other possible alternatives for offering a reminder service. We’d like to ask drivers to check their license [for the expiration date in the meantime.] We know this is an inconvenience but we are working to restore the service.

The Globe also suggests contacting AAA of Southern New England to use their service.  AAA can be accessed here.
