AUGUSTA Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap recently announced the launch of an extension to The Parent's Supervised Driving Program, a new mobile app titled RoadReady. The app, sponsored by Ford Motor Company, is designed to augment the program in its mission to address a need to improve roadway safety and teen driving behaviors. RoadReady is currently available on the App Store at no charge and will be made available to Android users in 2014.

'It's a great feeling to be arming parents and teens with a technologically advanced, free toolkit that encourages their participation in the teen driver education process,' said Secretary Dunlap. 'Not only are we providing parents of permitted teens with a guide to assist them through the state-required 70 hours of supervised driving, but this new mobile app RoadReady will help parents to track the actual time they spent behind the wheel with their teen.'

AUGUSTA Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap has announced that customers are now able to access the new and improved Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) online service, developed through a partnership between the Department and the Information Resource of Maine (InforME). 

Enhancements to the filing service for all users include:
