Driver’s License Ring: A Helpful Chart

Office of the Attorney General

I survived the rain and horrible parking, and attended this morning’s Newark press conference, featuring Attorney General Paula Dow and Motor Vehicle Commission Chief Administrator Raymond Martinez.

They announced indictments charging 40 people, including six former MVC clerks, with participating in criminal rings that illegally sold New Jersey digital driver’s licenses to unauthorized persons at five motor vehicle agencies (Lodi, East Orange, Edison, Jersey City and North Bergen).

Besides the clerks, the others involved in the alleged ring were 21 customers, and other folks that were referred to as brokers and intermediaries. The chart above breaks it down…a bit. Click here for a larger image.

Allegedly, the “broker” would spread the word that for a price of several thousand dollars they would arrange for the customer to obtain a driver’s license or renewal without the required six points of identification. In some instances, the brokers relied on “runners” to bring them customers.

Eventually, once the broker or intermediary already conspired with the clerk, they would fill out a license application or renewal form and have the customer sign it. The broker would usually accompany the customer to the motor vehicle agency and provide specific instructions regarding the conspiring clerk.

It was an intricate  and well-thought out process, but the state won again.
