The RMV has discontinued the service because the company that provided the reminders was sold.
Five years after the Registry of Motor Vehicles did away with U.S. Mail license expiration reminders, Massachusetts drivers will now find that the email version is gone as well. The RMV, which has a branch in Danvers at Liberty Tree Mall, has done away with email reminders which service drivers whose licenses are about to expire, according to CBS Local. The RMV stopped mailing reminders in November 2008. The company that provided the service was recently sold, according to WBZ. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation is looking into restoring the free service and alternative reminder methods, the story says.
