Vermont: DMV Online Suite of Services Expands with New Driver’s Education Certification Service

As part of its ongoing effort to streamline processes in order to better serve its customers, the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles in Montpelier announces the launch of its new Driver’s Education Certification Service - its 8th online service in as many years.

Teaming up with the Agency of Education and the state’s eGovernment partner Vermont Information Consortium (VIC), the Vermont DMV is launching the new web service for the 2014-15 school year and the busy season for driver’s education trainings.

“This new service represents a collaborative effort with the Agency of Education to automate the reporting of the annual driver’s education program in Vermont,” said DMV Commissioner Robert Ide. “It will expedite the driver’s ed reporting process, help prevent the potential for fraud, and make information more accessible about high school and driving school programs across the State.”

Following a recommendation from an assessment of the state’s driver’s education program conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2011, the new service will enable driver’s education instructors and state personnel to track and record student driver’s education course completion results electronically. It will also facilitate a more streamlined workflow process among the DMV, the Agency of Education, and schools across the state. Available beginning in August 2014 through www.dmv.vermont.gov, it is expected that the new 24/7 online service will not only be extremely convenient, but will also help save the State significantly in terms of paper and postage costs.

For more information, visit the new service through the Vermont DMV website at www.dmv.vermont.gov, or call the Vermont DMV at 800-529-2535.

Among some of the other popular online services offered by the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles are DMV Express, License Reinstatement, 72 Hour Truck Permitting (IRP-IFTA), Motorcycle Course Registrations, and Motor Vehicle Record retrievals.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability.

The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
