License Transactions > Class M Permit

Identity

When a customer 18 years of age or older applies for a new Class M permit, he/she is required to present at least three forms of identification (date of birth, signature, Massachusetts residence) as well as provide a valid Social Security number or a Denial Notice.  When a customer 17 years of age or under applies for a new Class M permit, he/she is required to present proof of date of birth, provide a valid Social Security number or a Denial Notice, and his/her parent or guardian must provide consent by signing the application.

Additional information may need to be verified in the following situations:

1.  The customer has documents in a language other than English

2.  The customer has a non-United States passport with a visa

3.  The customer has changed his/her name

4.  The customer has changed his/her gender

If a customer’s application cannot be processed at this stage, he/she is entitled to an explanation and an appeals process.
