The Massachusetts Department of Transportation reported that the Registry of Motor Vehicles opened a new branch in Lowell, Massachusetts. The Mass. Department of Transportation (DOT) partnered with the City of Lowell to work out arrangements and details which allowed the new branch to open. The Registry facility is described as “state of the art” and it is designed to improve customer service to those in the Lowell, Massachusetts region.
The new Lowell Registry is located at 77 Middlesex Street, Lowell, MA 01852, in the Edward J. Early Parking Garage Building. It replaces the branch located at 450 Chelmsford Street in Lowell, which closed on June 4, 2010.
License reinstatement, suspension, and hardship license hearings will not be conducted at the new Lowell RMV branch. Instead, if you need to see a Registry of Motor Vehicles Hearings Officer, you must go to the Lawrence, Massachusetts Registry. The Lawrence Registry is located at 73 Winthrop Avenue, Lawrence, MA. Hearings are conducted daily from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM., and on Thursday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. RMV Hearing Officers are also located in Boston, Brockton, Fall River, S. Yarmouth, Springfield, Wilmington, and Worcester on various days of the week, at various times.
Hearings for breathalyzer refusal suspensions are only conducted at the Registry of Motor Vehicles, Driver Control Unit, which is located at 630 Washington Street in Boston. These hearings must be held within fifteen (15) days of the chemical test refusal suspension.
