Reviews of Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles Locations and Hours

Visited the RMV's Springfield office on 2/18/2015 at 1:04 pm. Waited for an hour and noticed, in my assigned line (B) there were only 7 people served in 55 minutes. Given my number, I could expect to wait until 5 pm. I decided to return my number to the front desk staff, who informed me they were having computer trouble. Why not tell customers?!! And give us the opportunity to return at another time. So disrespectful.

i have been calling for two weeks straight and am wondering if anyone really works here or if our taxes are only paying the outrageous phone bill for the on hold time. this automated system is for the birds. i only have a certain amount of time to find out how my liscense got suspended when the fine was paid in january.

i want to know if you renew your licnese a month after it has alread expired do you have to do all the road testin and permit all over again?????

I forgot to renew my license

My birthday was 4/25/1946 can I renew it today on line?

I am out of state and need to speak with someone at the registry, however I waiting on hold for over 3 hours yesterday without any human interaction and I have now been on hold for over 1 hour this morning with the same results. I have also emailed and asked for someone to contact me, but I have not heard back from the MA registry in any way, shape or form.

If you are going for finest contents like I do, simply pay a visit this website daily since it offers feature contents, thanks

i would like to know if the rmv is open monday december 26th, i need to register my vehicle

When I visited the Boston RMV Branch this week I was told that I had to go to the Quincy Branch for the relevant issue, a temporary handicap placard. The RMV site, however, shows there is no Quincy branch. It does not appear on the lists of branches, maps, phone lists, etc.

I payed to get a new license cause it had expired but I never received it and then was told I had a default warrant so they couldn't send it out to me do to suspension. Well I went to the court house and had the Warrant removed. Now does the RMV automatically send me my license or do I have to call or go to the RMV.....and am I suppose to pay again? Any help would be much appreciated.

The People at the DMV are hardworking and understanding.

I went into the registrry and explain my case. the ticket was $700 and it was lower to $350 i told the officer i would need some time in paying the ticket. she told me i would be fine as long as i pay it. i cannot find the paper work she gave me and want to clear this up. i jus wanted the amount i owed and were do i go to pay it.
