MA "DMV" is a joke

My license was suspended for a failure to appear for a non-moving violation. I had recently moved to NC and was using my MA license. NC has since cleared the record and I am eligible for a license in their state. MA, however, requires one to appear in person with documents to clear NDR records. They need a clearance letter which NC no longer issues. They also need a letter which is less than 30 days old from the NDR in Washington, DC. I contacted a lawyer in Boston to help and even a lawyer who charges $1200.00 to clear up the problem will need your presence in the state. What is wrong with MA and its backward systems?

NDR is a scam to get money from people

NDR " National Driver Registry" is a scam setup. Anyone who attempts to renew their license online will get an error msg stating "NDR has detected issues with your driver's record" and therefore you cannot renew your license. I called my local DMV after trying to renew my license on their site and getting this msg. My DMV instantly told me that there are no issues, my license is not suspended and instead of doing it online to come directly into the DMV. Now here's the kicker, the NDR is supposedly an org that any place that wants to can put you into their records as being any sort of "problem" driver, usually any DMV anywhere can do this. You cannot get any info out of them via a call. They will not tell you who submitted a negative report either. You will have to send notarized paperwork to Washington DC and only then will they tell you who specifically submitted a report.Yet, pay the fine via credit card now (even though you cannot know who , where, when and what the fine is for) and your name will be released in good standing. The overall objective of this NDR is the same as a collection agency trying to be an agent on behalf of any DMV that claims you owe them money. In my case, I was licensed in only one state. Never got any out of state license, out of state tickets, etc and therefore do not owe any thing for revoked, suspended or unpaid fines. Lesson learned: DO NOT RENEW ONLINE.

N.You. State Department of Motor Vehicles is abusing their power through the N.D.R.

I have a DWIA conviction that the court's doubled my revocation from 3 months to 6 months, but New York is keeping my status as revoked till this very day 5 years later.
