Motor Vehicle Email Reminder

Often times do you find yourself forgetting when your motor vehicle registration expires? Below is a link through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles where you can enter your email address and plate information. The state will send you an email a month in advance reminding you that you have a motor vehicle registration to renew. As a trial to see if it works I have submitted my own motor vehicle information through this link and will see if I receive a reminder in November, because I know my registration runs out in December. I hope someday that we can develop a system internally in our office to send out reminders, but as a start please try out the link below from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles website itself that sends our office the preprints for renewals.

*Also as a reminder:

-When it does come time to renew your registration it is REQUIRED to bring in proof of your current VALID vehicle insurance. If you have an electronic copy, load it on your mobile device before you get to the town office, we have terrible cell phone service. If need be, you may have it faxed over to our office at 207-359-2342. Please note if you do have it faxed over it increases the amount of paper that we use, so please come prepared.

-If you have the old yellow registration from the expiring year it makes the registration process much quicker. You should have that in your vehicle already, if you get pulled over you will most likely get a ticket.

-Please bring your current mileage, that is required to put on the back of the copies that we send to the state.
