EFFECT OF RENEWAL BY MAIL FOR DRIVERS WITH LESS THAN FOUR-YEAR CLEAN RECORDS

A pilot program was established by SB 483 (Speraw, 1982), authorizing the Director of the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to renew by mail the licenses of drivers lacking clean four-year records, but showing clean two-year records immediately prior to selection. During 18 months, there was no evidence that the extension program resulted in increased accidents for the group offered renewal by mail as compared to the control group. In addition, there was no significant difference between the groups with respect to subsequent convictions.
