Automated License Reminder and Renewal Through the RMV Online

The internet has made a lot of things in our daily lives a whole lot easier, whether it be finding a phone number, selling something in the classifieds or reconnecting with a old friend.

Most people don’t make it a point to check their license or ID to see when it expires.  Sometimes we may not even notice until it’s too late, and nobody wants to get pulled over while they are driving and have to deal with the added trouble of an expired license.

The Massachusetts RMV recently revamped their website, and among other things have made renewing your license of Mass state ID easier.

The first thing to do is setup a reminder that your license or ID is going to expire.  The steps are simple:

  1. Go the THIS page and click the CONTINUE button
  2. Read the disclaimer, check that you agree, and click ACCEPT
  3. Enter your license of ID number, date of birth, zip code, and click CONTINUE
  4. Select if you would like to be notified by email, phone, or a text message, click CONTINUE twice and you’re done!

All but the last step above is handled through the Mass RMV website, so there is no worry about anyone else having your personal information.  The last step is on the Senza website who handle the reminder process, and they only know when to send the reminder (usually 45 days before expiration).  It took me no more than 2 minutes to do, even while typing these steps.

Once you get a reminder you can renew your license or ID right on the RMV website without ever going into a branch.  The links are right on the front page or the RMV website, or you can click HERE to renew your license or HERE to renew your Mass state ID.

The process is just as simple as above.  Fill out some information and click continue a few times.  There is the added step at the end of paying for your transaction which is easy with a credit card.  Unfortunately (or fortunately for me) my license doesn’t need to be renewed just yet so I can’t go through all the steps myself.  Needless to say it’s much easier than waiting in line at a branch.

There are many more things you can do on the site to save yourself some time and effort.  We’ll cover some more of them in detail in the future.
