|Agency Decision Summary||
The Department of Motor Vehicles ("DMV”) currently accepts proof of a license from another state by fax. DMV additionally accepts records via the State-to-State Verification Service, which allows a state to electronically check with all other participating states to determine if the applicant currently holds a driver license or identification card in another state. This service is utilized by a majority of states, with several additional states at various stages of implementation. As any regulation promulgated by DMV in response to this Petition for Rulemaking would be duplicative of existing services, DMV has decided to not initiate rulemaking in response to this petition.
