 Moped Expiration Decal Change (10/17/2022) 
   

Moped Expiration Decal Change

Moped registrations/plates are valid for two years and expire on the last day of March. Currently, moped expiration decals are issued with the format MONTH YEAR (example: MAR 23, MAR 24).

Beginning with moped registrations/plates expiring in March 2025, we are switching to the standard expiration decals that are used for other vehicles. This means that they will no longer include the month and will only show the year they expire.
This change will speed up the moped renewal process because we can use the current embedded stock to renew mopeds rather than the manual process used today.

Law enforcement has been notified of this change.

 Full Term Credentials for Asylees and Refugees (10/14/2022) 
   

Full Term Credentials for Asylees and Refugees 

Customers whose SAVE check returns a status of Asylee or Refugee are considered to have permanent lawful presence and will be eligible for full-term (5-year) credentials (all classes) beginning October 13, 2022.  Previously, these customers received a one-year card.

A change has been made to ATLAS to allow for the issuance of the full-term credential automatically for all applicants applying for a license or ID after the effective date of this change.  Customers currently awaiting a SAVE Step Two or Step Three response will also receive the full-term credential if their SAVE case closes after October 13th.

This change will benefit customers with Asylee or Refugee statuses who have been renewing annually since ATLAS was implemented.

For Registry-related questions, you may also contact MAIA's Member Relations Advocate, Kathy Cormier, at [email protected] or 508-634-7353.
