MassDOT Registrar of Motor Vehicles Rachel Kaprielian today joined local officials and announced the availability of driver’s license permit testing at the Attleboro RMV Branch, located at 75 Park Street.
The Attleboro Branch is one of two express branches in the Commonwealth that provide limited license and registration transactions. The availability of the permit testing in Attleboro will help the RMV manage an anticipated influx of test takers during the busy school vacation period.
“The City has been a great partner and has made it possible to bring permit testing to Attleboro,” said Registrar Kaprielian. “Teens and new drivers may now complete this important step in the licensing process closer to home.”
The Registry delivered existing automated testing equipment to provide six testing stations in Attleboro. The move will save area residents from traveling to Taunton, Milford or Brockton to complete the 20 minute test.
The Registry of Motor Vehicles administered approximately 45,000 permit tests across the Commonwealth in 2012. There are 4.73 million licensed drivers in Massachusetts. To perform many basic transactions, visit the RMV online today at its new web address: http://www.massrmv.com
