BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - The state is investigating what it says about 130 invalid applications for driver’s licenses at the Department of Motor Vehicles office in Bennington, Vermont.

Glen Button, director of enforcement and safety for the state Department of Motor Vehicles, says staff recognized the addresses were invalid. He tells the Brattleboro Reformer (https://bit.ly/1bI41RH) investigators spoke with about 15 of the applicants and learned some paid $2,000 in New York City for help in getting licenses in Vermont.

He said they came in to take the written test to get their permits, then were scheduled to come in to take the road test. Investigators spoke to them after the road test.

Sue Minter, the secretary of the Vermont Agency of Transportation, says there has been no effort by the DMV to entrap anyone.
