Registration Renewal. Don’t Forget it.

Registration Renewal. Don’t Forget it.

Massachusetts requires car registration to be renewed every two years. There is a number of ways to do it keeping your car within the law. Above all it is a matter of safety and avoids problems with the local authorities.

The department of traffic of Massachusetts, RMV, sends you a renewal application called RMV-2 through the mail, 6 to 8 weeks before the current registration expires. In case you don’t receive your renewal package, there are a number of reasons why it didn’t make it to you: wrong address, for instance. Despite that, you still have to renew it.

Other more serious possible reasons for not receiving the renewal package include:

  • Any non paid parking tickets, non paid taxes or the vehicle has a citation for it.
  • Nonpayment of child support
  • Pending jail mandates
  • Wrong address in file

Check your registration for errors and misprints and make the necessary corrections. You will get a stamp valid for two years to be affixed to your license plate. A very simple procedure. It can be also paid at the RMV website. Don’t forget it!

  • Autonomous cars, if they do in fact one day takeover the roads, will someday hopefully eliminate the need for a driver at the wheel. In that future scenario, German auto parts supplier Kiekert believes traditional door hatches also won’t be necessary. Apparently future humans will struggle with opening doors.

    Kiekert spoke about its effort to—as the news outlet put it—“eliminate the need for door handles.” The company developed an electric release hatch called NuEntry that uses a suite of ex... Read more
