 YAC Volunteers Clean Up Wollaston Beach! (5/11/2021) 

YAC Volunteers Clean Up Wollaston Beach!

MAIA’s Young Agents Committee found a safe and rewarding way to give back to the community on Saturday, May 1st! Six YAC members arrived at Wollaston Beach in Quincy for a much-needed shore cleanup. Each YAC filled up at least one bag with debris, leaving the beach looking just a little bit better than the way they found it. The group ended the day with a celebratory meal at The Clam Box. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning! To learn more about MAIA’s YAC opportunities, email YAC Liaison Jamie Leslie.

 REAL ID Documentation Revised to Reflect New Enforcement Date (5/10/2021) 

REAL ID Documentation Revised to Reflect New Enforcement Date

The MA RMV has revised the REAL ID documentation and Mass.Gov/RMV website to reflect the new full enforcement date of May 3, 2023. The following REAL ID documents have been updated and are available online: Identification Documents Checklist (LIC115); Driver’s Manual; and REAL ID vs. Standard ID Flyer. Please continue to encourage customers to obtain REAL IDs.  

Identification Documents Checklist (LIC115)

This form has been updated online and a downloadable copy is AVAILABLE HERE.  The revised version has a date of “0521” in the bottom right corner. Please recycle/destroy any copies you have of the old version and begin using the new version immediately.

Driver’s Manual

A revised May 2021 version has been posted online.  Also, updated stickers and inserts will soon be printed for the March 2020 hard copies, which will still be used.

REAL ID vs. Standard ID Flyer

This has been updated online and color copies will be mailed to each RMV Service Center for display.


In addition, all pages on Mass.Gov/RMV that reference REAL ID have been revised.

Beginning May 3, 2023, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID compliant driver’s license or identification card, or another TSA-acceptable form of identification, for domestic air travel and to enter certain federal facilities. The REAL ID enforcement date was extended from October 1, 2021 to May 3, 2023 because of COVID-19.

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