ADA Notice

NOTICE UNDER THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT

 

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, (DHSMV), will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities in its services, programs, or activities.

DHSMV has two ADA coordinators, an Internal ADA Coordinator to address any employee or employment issues and an External ADA Coordinator to address any customer, public, or facility related issues.

Employment: DHSMV does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Effective Communication: DHSMV will attempt, upon request, to provide services for persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in DHSMV programs, including sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.

Modifications to Policies and Procedures: DHSMV will make reasonable modifications to programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate equally. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in DHSMV offices.

Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies to participate in DHSMV service, should contact the office manager as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.

The ADA does not require the DHSMV to take action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial burden.

Complaints that a program, service, or activity of DHSMV is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to one of the following:
