New York Driver Licenses

Molly Redden filed this request with the Department of Motor Vehicles of New York.
Awaiting Acknowledgement


From: Molly Redden

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

1) A list, preferably in a table, of driver license applications submitted in the state of New York between Jan 1, 2014 to present by people born in Puerto Rico. This should include the date the application was submitted, the person's current residence, their birthplace (Puerto Rico) and if the application was approved, pending or denied and the reason why it is pending or denied.
2) A description of the process and/or policies used to verify the eligibility of people in Puerto Rico for a driver's license in New York.
3) Copies of all materials and/or instructions used to verify the citizenship of people born in Puerto Rico.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. As I am a member of the media and this information will be used to inform the public, I request a fee waiver for this request. Also, as this is urgent public information, I request that it be expedited.

In the event that there are fees, I would be willing to pay up to $10 and I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
