Whenever the applicant contacts the department of transportation to discuss the petition, the investigation under this subdivision shall begin anew, notwithstanding any prior denial due to the person's failure to timely respond. The applicant shall act in good faith and use reasonable efforts to provide additional information that could reasonably lead the department of transportation to discover correct birth information or secondary documentation as described in subd. 3g., to assist the department of transportation in processing the application.
