State Rep. John P. Fresolo (D-Worcester) introduced the legislation that lowered the eligibility age for the official Massachusetts identity document which Governor Patrick signed into law last summer.
A group of students from Worcester South High School joined the Registrar and Rep Fresolo at today’s announcement to become among the first to apply for a Mass ID.
Under-age applicants must satisfy all the requirements for obtaining a Mass ID which can be found in the driver’s manual or at www.mass.gov/rmv.
MassDOT RMV Division serves more than 4.6 million drivers at 31 branch locations and online at www.mass.gov/rmv.
