RMV Updates: Commercial credentials & renewal season

We have two updates from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles this week.

Commercial credential extensions continue

All commercial credentials (CDLs and CLPs) that expired or will expire between March 1, 2020 and December 30, 2020 have been extended and will remain valid until December 31, 2020.

Registration Renewals for Trailers and Commercial Vehicles

This year, due to the pandemic, all Trailer and Commercial registration renewals dropped off at a Registration Drop Off Center with Registration Renewal Applications (RMV-2s) will be sent to the RMV’s Headquarters for processing. These renewed registrations and decals will be mailed to the address on file with the RMV.The RMV-2 provides different options to renew your registration(s) – by mail, online, etc. In addition, the RMV has also implemented a quick and easy online renewal transaction at Mass.Gov/RMV which allows you to renew multiple vehicles at a time and submit your payment once.

If you choose to drop off your renewal transactions at an RMV Drop Off Center, follow the steps below to ensure your work is processed in a timely manner.

  1. Separate any RMV-2s from other registration drop off work and create 2 bundles with separate cover sheets
  2. Determine the amount for the renewals and place a completed check with totaled amount, made payable to MassDOT, in the bundle
  3. Registration renewals will be sent to the RMV’s Headquarters and prioritized based on expiration date rather than first in, first out
  4. The RMV will process your renewals and mail the renewed registrations and decals to the address on record
Please do not include any other transaction paperwork besides RMV-2 applications (registration renewals) in your bundle.
