MD MVA halts policy for transgendered drivers

By Washington Post editors

Maryland’s Motor Vehicle Administration is temporarily halting a policy that would have forced people living as the opposite sex to get an amended birth certificate before applying to change their gender on their driver’s license, according to the Associated Press.

The policy was to have taken effect on Friday.

Current policy requires written confirmation from a physician or psychologist that the applicant is under supervision for a gender change.

The decision doesn’t affect a policy requiring people who have had transgender surgery to provide an amended birth certificate or court order when seeking a driver’s license change, the AP reported.

What idiots. Thankfully they are dropping the requirement. Just because someone had a sex-change they're unfit to drive. Which bigot came up with that?
