BROCKTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Four Registry of Motor Vehicles employees have been fired after an investigation that showed more than 2,000 licenses were given out at the Brockton RMV without a road test.
An investigation into the licenses began in 2020 when an RMV manager noticed unusual activity at the RMV's Brockton center and told law enforcement. The agency said an investigation found that around 2,100 people had been given driver's licenses without taking the road test, starting in April 2018. The RMV fired two road examiners and two employees at the service center in the wake of the investigation.
All of the drivers have been told by mail that they need to retake the test within ten days or have their license suspended. The RMV will be opening up appointments outside the usual hours to take on the urgent demand.
Any of the drivers that fail will get a Massachusetts ID and a learner's permit.
