“CA DMV Chaos” Sr. Fellow Lawrence McQuillan appears on KFAX radio
Posted: Wed. January 30, 2019, 2:19pm PT

And also because there is no market discipline. There is no where else to go to get a driver's license or new Real ID required by federal law. Sr. Fellow Lawrence McQuiilan's recommendations for the DMV include private venders who are held to better standards through customer satisfaction.
