As part of its effort to assist victims of last week’s tornado, the Patrick-Murray Administration announced that Western Massachusetts residents who lost their driver’s license or Massachusetts ID in the storm can apply for a free duplicate at Registry of Motor Vehicles offices.
Governor Deval Patrick has directed that the RMV waive the $25 fee associated with duplicate IDs and license for residents living in the communities impacted by the storms. Residents in need of this service can visit their local RMV offices to obtain a duplicate. The RMV locations serving the impacted communities include Chicopee, Easthampton, Milford, Southbridge, Springfield and Worcester. The RMV will be offering this service through June 30.
Recognizing the extent of damage that the storm had across the impacted communities, Governor Patrick directed the RMV to provide this assistance to residents throughout the region.
Eligible communities include: Southbridge, West Springfield, Springfield, Brimfield, Monson, Wilbraham, Sturbridge, Westfield, Agawam, Auburn, Chester, Blandford, Montgomery, Russell, Holyoke, Chicopee, Ludlow, East Longmeadow, Longmeadow, Wales, Oxford, Brookfield, East Brookfield, Webster, Holden, Southampton, Easthampton, Hampden, Charlton, Douglas, Millbury, Uxbridge, Belchertown, Northampton and Palmer.
