The Mass. RMV Branch in Beverly will close on Friday, September 11, 2009. This closing was part of a cost saving measure which involves relocating branches from locations where the Mass. Registry was leasing space to state-owned buildings. Branch relocations will save 1.7 million dollars in the coming year. RMV Branches have already closed in some locations including Framingham and Southbridge. The Registry opened a branch at the Charlton rest area on the Mass. Pike and a RMV Express Office at the Natick Service area on the Mass. Pike. These two new locations will replace the Framingham and Southbridge locations.
If you have a license suspension or hardship license issue, you cannot go to these new locations and you must go to a Branch which does Registry hearings. These license suspension and hardship license hearings are currently being done in Beverly, Boston, Brockton, Lawrence, Lowell, S. Yarmouth, Springfield, Wilmington, and Worcester. Not all of these RMV branches offer hearings every day.
