Massachusetts RMV (Registry of Motor Vehicles)
The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles serves as the state’s DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles). The RMV is responsible for all matters related to driving in Massachusetts, from licensing to registration and everything in between. Here’s a quick overview of what the RMV offers.
Massachusetts RMV Online Services
If you’re dreading a trip to your local RMV office, there’s some good news. Many of the RMV’s services and forms can be found online. The RMV makes it easy for you by listing all of the online services on the Mass RMV Online Services page. Available online services include drivers license and registration renewal and address change; you can also schedule your drivers license road test and possibly pay a traffic citation online.
Massachusetts RMV Forms and Manuals
You can save time at the RMV by having your required forms completed when you get there. Links to the most commonly used forms can be found on the Massachusetts RMV Forms and Manuals page. Forms that you can find here include drivers license application and vehicle registration forms. You can also download various RMV manuals, including the state’s driver and motorcycle riders’ manuals.
MA RMV Appointments
Unfortunately, you can only schedule an appointment at the RMV for your drivers license road test. You can do so by using the RMV online scheduling system. For all other driver and vehicle services that require a visit to the RMV, you’ll need to wait in line. Remember that by avoiding peak hours (it’s busiest around noon) and days (Mondays or Fridays tend to be the busiest), you may be able to save yourself some time.
MA RMV Office Locations
The Massachusetts RMV Branch Finder is the page you’ll want to visit to find your local RMV office. The page offers a map of locations, along with a full list of branch offices as well as AAA offices that offer RMV services to AAA members. If you’re unsure of the services that your local office provides, or if you want to check to see if you can fulfill your RMV needs online, be sure to call that branch before you make the trip!
