License Plates Green Veh 

A new law effective today authorizes the RMV to create registration requirements for several alternative-type classes of vehicles. 

The state statute allows low speed and limited use vehicles as they are now defined, to be registered, titled, insured and inspected. The RMV has created distinctive license plates for each new class of "green vehicle."

Before the Massachusetts Legislature passed the statute last January, the RMV prohibited the registration of certain two to four wheeled electric and liquid-fueled vehicles because they either didn't meet federal certification or there were concerns about their safe operation on roadways designed for higher speed vehicles.

Visit the RMV website to learn more about the requirements.
