Out of State Registration Compliance

The Methuen Police Department is taking part in an intensive program to identify out-of-state vehicles that are illegally registered. If you live in Methuen you must register your vehicle in Massachusetts. Failure to comply with this law could result in towing, fines and your right to operate in Massachusetts could be suspended.

If you have recently moved from another State to Massachusetts, you must transfer your out-of-state registration to a Massachusetts Registration within 30 days to be compliant. In order to successfully complete this process, prior to arriving at the Registry of Motor Vehicles, you must obtain Massachusetts Insurance and have a completed RMV-1 form.

If you have any questions regarding this notice, or you wish to report a vehicle, please contact the Methuen Police Department Out-of-State Registration Enforcement Unit at 978-983-8785.
