The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has not done enough to prevent automotive repair shops and inspection stations from operating without valid registrations, putting consumers at an increased risk to be scammed by dishonest businesses, according to an audit issued today by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli.

"DMV has a responsibility to help prevent consumers from being taken for a ride by unscrupulous repair shops," said DiNapoli. "This means doing more to ensure that New York's repair shops are legitimately registered and working harder to investigate and resolve consumer complaints in a timely manner."
