MassDOT today opened a Registry of Motor Vehicles branch at the former Casaubon Senior Center in Southbridge. Through a local and state partnership forged by Lt. Governor Timothy Murray, the town will provide lower cost space for the new RMV office, which supports the administration's transportation reform efforts to increase savings and improve customer service. Additionally, the new RMV expects to create more foot-traffic in the area, likely boosting the town’s efforts to revitalize the downtown business district.
The new Southbridge branch will occupy 2,100 square feet in the Casaubon Senior Center and will offer all license and registration services including road tests. It will be open Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
RMV last year closed eight branches including one in Southbridge to address severe budget constraints and reduce private leasing costs. MassDOT continues to seek opportunities to locate branches in lower cost public spaces.
MassDOT RMV Division serves more than 4.6 million drivers at 31 branch locations and online at www.mass.gov/rmv. In the past two years, the RMV has added more than a dozen internet transactions to the website enabling customers to apply online for a first time license or convert an out-of-state license and then schedule a branch appointment; renew a license, ID, and registration; order a driving record, police crash report and Fast Lane transponder; view the status of a license, registration, driver education certificate and title; sign up for a license renewal reminder and organ donation as well as cancel a registration plate.
