Coming Soon: Easy standardized DMV Gender Marker Changes?

The clip to the left is from MOVE which is published by The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) a non-governmental, educational association representing the state and provincial officials in the United States and Canada who administer and enforce motor vehicle laws.

AAMVA states it's mission is to "facilitate communication and foster standardization among member jurisdictions concerning traffic safety, titling of motor vehicles, and licensing drivers."

Personally I think this is a wonderful concept! Imagine being able to renew a Texas license without having a clerk question your gender marker at the top of her lungs!

It would be nice next time I renew if that same loud clerk did not take offense like she did last time when I graciously asked to be served by someone else after having those experiences with her in previous years!

After seeing the above paragraph from the TX DPS communications director in "MOVE" and reflecting on the difficulties I have renewing my licence showing my correct gender I decided to tweet our office and see if they were reading MOVE. I'd also like to suggest the Texas DPS accept the NCTE/AAMVA educational offer.

I'll keep you posted.

It would be SO helpful...and it's only right, as well.

And speaking of the DMV, my wife had an experience yesterday that resulted in our deciding to write a letter to DMV headquarters in Albany, complimenting the woman in our local office for the fantastic help she gave us. After all, it's only fair: we'd complain if we had received poor service, so we will send compliments for good service.
