Mass RMV Website to Temporarily Close for License Business
If you have business online with the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles involving your license it would be best to take care of it before 8 p.m. on Saturday.
The RMV's website will be unavailable for license and ID transactions to allow for "federal system updates" until Sunday night at 8 p.m., according to a tweet. Services including the ability to make an appointment for one of the RMV's open service centers and online services will be available.
An RMV spokeswoman referred questions about the nature of the update to the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators. Spokesman Ian Grossman told Seacoast Current that part of the network that connects all the DMVs nationwide to each other and to the federal government will be partially offline this weekend to support Michigan joining the State to State Verification Service.
The RMV in February said that over 584,000 registered vehicles have an expired inspection sticker after extensions were granted between March and May of 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
"The RMV encourages any customer with an expired inspection sticker to make a plan to get their inspection and sticker updated," acting Registrar of Motor Vehicles Colleen Ogilvie said. "Resources are readily available to help customers locate a convenient inspection station and guide them through the inspection process, following all safety and social distancing protocols to keep customers and inspection station staff safe."
