Registry customer service centers will be closed on Thursday, November 11 and will reopen for appointments and walk-ins on Friday, November 12. Anyone who is a member of AAA may visit any AAA location by appointment for some Registry transactions and more than 40 Registry transactions can be done online: www.mass.gov/RMV.

 

MassDOT’s Highway Assistance Program, sponsored by MAPFRE, will be increasing patrols on all major roadways to support roadside assistance needs. Requests for assistance can be initiated by calling 911.
