Happy Fourth everyone.
I know we all have been waiting for this law to take effect. Here it is below.
Work and Family Mobility Act
Starting July 2023, eligible residents in Massachusetts can obtain a Standard (Class D or M) driver's license, regardless of immigration status, under the Work and Family Mobility Act.
The RMV will continue to require applicants to prove their identity and date of birth, social security status, and Massachusetts residency. All drivers will still be required to pass a learner's permit exam, vision screening, and a road test.
WMFA only changes identity requirements for Standard (Class D or M) driver's licenses. All Standard driver's licenses will continue to have "NOT FOR FEDERAL ID" printed on the card.
What does NOT FOR FEDERAL ID mean to you and me?
Federal ID is an ID you can use to fly between the states, and to enter Federal Buildings. This will not take effect until May 7, 2025. You must go to the RMV, or DMV, to apply for one.
