Thomas Bowes is out as director of the Registry of Motor Vehicles division that stopped processing alerts from out of state.
An oversight panel yesterday removed Bowes as director of the RMV Merit Rating Board.
The division stopped processing alerts from out of state of major violations by Massachusetts drivers over a year ago.
Registry officials admit they should have stripped West Springfield man Volodymyr Zhukovskyy of his license for a Connecticut DUI arrest before a June crash that killed seven motorcyclists in New Hampshire.
