Ops Memo 2014-15: External Agency Data: Registry of Motor Vehicles OBSOLETE


Obsoleted by Ops Memo 2014-39 (June 11, 2014).

In an ongoing effort to enhance the Department’s program integrity, DTA continues to expand data verification by interfacing with real time online services provided by external sources.

DTA has expanded access to the MassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). This access will include information on state issued driver’s licenses, identification cards (Massachusetts IDs and Massachusetts Liquor IDs) (hereafter referred to as licenses) and vehicle registration information for applicants and clients (hereafter referred to as clients) for all DTA programs.

Access was later expanded for DTA staff to view client picture images from RMV.

Purpose of Memo
Operations Memo 2013-40 provided DTA staff with information about the enhanced data verification interfacing capabilities between DTA and the RMV. This Operations Memo is being issued to:

  • remind staff that RMV photos were available on BEACON effective Monday, September 23rd; and
  • correct the types of verifications for which this match can serve under the Purpose of the RMV Enhancements section. This match can serve for Massachusetts residency, not address.

There are no other substantive changes.

Obsolete Memo
This Operations Memo obsoletes Operations Memo 2013-40.
