Select Massachusetts RMV Locations Re-Open

The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles will re-open today in 7 different locations, which includes the Fall River location.


The RMV is asking customers who do not have immediate needs for required in-person services to delay their visits. 


In an attempt to practice “social-distancing” customers are asked to not bring in multiple individuals with them. 


“Customers should expect longer waits as we will need to limit any crowding in the centers to comply with social distancing protocols,” Transportation Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack said. “We will be limiting the number of people allowed inside Service Centers and once those limits are reached, customers will have to either leave and come back or wait outside until it is possible to let them in while still maintaining social distancing.”


The six centers that will be open along with Fall River are Boston/Haymarket, Brockton, Lawrence, Pittsfield, Plymouth and Worcester. 


“The RMV is trying to offer necessary in-person transactions while striking a balance between protecting the health and safety of the public,” said Acting Registrar Jamey Tesler.  “Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, in-person transactions will be conducted in keeping with guidelines from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) and Commonwealth’s COVID-19 Response Command Center.”


Permit holders looking to take their road test will have to wait until Friday, March 20th. 


The Governor’s Executive Order provides that Learner’s Permits dated between March 1, 2020 and April 30, 2020 will continue to have an active status until sixty days after the printed expiration date.


Meanwhile, AAA locations will continue to offer select RMV services to their members excluding road tests.
