There will be customers who will still need to visit a branch before the end of year. Branch visits are required
for certain commercial registration transactions, for customers with outstanding financial obligations or

six months in advance. All vanity plates and trailers expire in November and commercial registrations and
motorcycles expire in December.
The RMV has launched a series of initiatives to enhance customer service efforts. Most recently, the agency
announced the availability of a Twitter feed @MassRMV as another way for customers to interact with the
agency in real time and installed free WiFi service at its eight busiest branches. Customers are encouraged
to Tweet feedback at @MassRMV #SkipTheLine.
