Will this be a problem? or will I have to pay the Brookline parking ticket first? It's from 2009, so I pray that there isn't any accumulated interest or anything.

I'm hoping I can just renew my expired Mass license here in New York and the ticket won't stop me from doing so.

What do you think?

I didn't think you could renew your license if you have outstanding tickets. I might be wrong though. You should check the RMV website. I'm sure there is an FAQ section and likely an answer there for you.

Well, it's renewing a MA license in NY. Whatever, I'll just pay it and hope it's not too expensive.

I would assume you're renewing over the internet on the MA RMV site because the state of NY has no authority to renew a driver's license issued by the state of MA. So, your geographic location has no bearing on the issue at hand.

Even if you are marked non-renewable with the RMV you can fix anything over the internet

Having run into something like that a few years ago myself, you will need to pay all tickets before you can renew. I learned that the hard way.

You will have to pay the ticket before you would be allowed to renew your license. I had two outstanding parking tickets from Peabody and 7 years later when I returned to MA, I had to pay them to get my license.

I finally got in touch with the Brookline parking people. They don't let me pay online, so i have to pay via money order (mail) or show up in person. I live in NYC, so I guess the money order is the obvious thing to do here.

They take credit card payments in Brookline for a lot of fees that other towns make you pay for with a check. I'm surprised they wouldn't take a card payment over the phone.

Brookline has such a racket going with parking tickets that I'm assuming it must be a high-volume industry there. That's why I'm surprised they don't make it easy to pay up. Seems as if most high-volume industries want to keep things moving along, so they make it easy for their numerous customers to pay quickly.
