I am trying to help a friend whose New York Driver License
Hello. I am trying to help a friend whose New York Driver License was either suspended or cancelled, which in turn has now caused his California Driver's License to be suspended of cancelled.The letter my friend has from NY DMV does not specify what citations my friend did not pay; nor how much is owed, nor to whom. Indeed, it does not even specify whether the citation/s is/are for moving offenses or just for parking tickets; which is significant, because according to their web site, NY DMV doesn't deal with parking tickets - but it's entirely unclear who DOES deal with parking tickets!That he knows of, the only infractions my friend have ever had in NY were two parking tickets, in 2005. They did not pay the tickets. And they saw the vehicle towed away, in front of them. Their vehicle was towed and then sold, as they could not afford to retrieve it.The family moved to California in 2008, and did not realize the two unpaid parking tickets would be a problem, [as they thought the sale of the minivan covered the penalty for the tickets and tow!]Then, they received notice from California DMV in August 2015, that his CA license would been suspended or revoked if he could not clear up the NY DMV issues by mid- Sept 2015… which he could not do. So now, his California Driver License is also suspended or revoked.The friend and his wife want to clear up the difficulties. But I cannot seem to discover how to help them, without going to a lawyer - which they can ill afford.The NY Legal Aid Society suggests going to www[dot]dmv[dot]ny[dot]gov to ask for a ‘copy of my driving record'… However, when I print out the form the NY Legal Aid Society recommends, form MV-15 (9/15), and read it, how to proceed becomes as clear as mud.It seems to be OK for my friend to authorize someone to help him fill out the form, and request information - but how do I ‘identify' him, if his passport is expired, and his only other two forms of identification, his NY driver license, and his California driver license, are now both ‘suspended or revoked'?Can I use the old NY driver license to identify him, on form MV-15(9/15)Also, to demonstrate that he has ‘authorized' me to ask for this info about him, do I need a notarized letter signed by him? The form doesn't say….And, what am I supposed to ‘check' on form MV-15(9/15)? Nothing seems to be exactly what I think I'm looking for…Looking at ‘Step 2, Part A' - perhaps ‘driving record history' and ‘certified certified suspension or revocation order photocopy'?And, looking at ‘Step 3' - perhaps #1, or #4, or #13, - but #1 sounds like me, the requester, is a govt agency, which I am not; #4 may apply, as my friend needs to use the info to clear his driving record in NY State; #13 may apply, as I am the one filling out the paperwork, for a friend - but where do I find ‘form MV-15GC'??? #13 says I ‘MAY' use that form - does that mean I MUST use that form? Where do I find it?Non of the options seem to be for what I want - a history of his driving record, INCLUDING PARKING TICKETS, along with how much money he owes, and to whom he owes it, [since NY DMV apparently doesn't deal in parking tickets, to whom does he send payment for those, and how does THAT agency notify NY DMV that he has paid, so that he can then petition NY DMV to reinstate his license/clear his name, so that he can re-apply in California for a driver license?Thanks you so much for any help you can give us.JKT, San Jose, CA

hi, i have a question about late pay parking ticket in NJ.My cousin signed the lease and owns the title of the car, but i was always driving the car. My cousin just received her permit early this month. Back in April, we received a parking ticket, but because my carelessness, we did not pay the ticket on time. Today, we received a letter from DMV, indicating my cousin's permit is suspended, we need to pay a fine of $100 and get her permit reinstate.Is there anything I can do to make sure this won't hurt her record badly? She did not have a valid permit when this happened. PS: the insurance is under my name since the day we leased the car, which can prove that I was driving the car and did not pay the ticket on time, not her.
