One lawmaker says he has the answer to end the dreaded DMV wait and it could involve privatization, and it comes in the form of a senate bill that would fund a $200,000 study to look at the impact of privatizing DMV services. … The study would review and make recommendations regarding DMV services including issuing and renewing driver’s licenses, vehicle registration and titles. According to the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, approximately half of the DMVs in the U.S. outsource some of their services to private entities. In many cases, the outsourcing is restricted to vehicle registration and titling activities, but some also have private partners performing driver licensing services.
