LETTER TO THE EDITOR: You can get money back from the DMV

I just wanted to thank Mr. Phiippe Jorat from his Dec. 3 letter to the editor for bringing to the attention of many, the issue of late notices from the Department of Motor Vehicles.

I read that letter and a light went off in my head about the $73 fine I paid because my registration was late. Most of us probably assumed we had been absent minded and missed seeing the bill, or accidentally threw it away. I went to the DMV to protest and demand a refund, and was assured, because of our previous on time payments, that we should get a refund.

You can obtain a refund form at the DMV and send it in. We received our full refund within a week. Go for it! This should not be a method of increasing revenue by the state. It does seem suspicious.
