The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles opened a new branch in the former post office building on Park Street in Attleboro. This branch replaces the North Attleboro Registry of Motor which was recently closed as a cost-saving measure as part of the Registry’s plan to move branches from high rent to free locations.
In addition to the branch in North Attleboro, the Mass. RMV has closed or will close 10 other RMV branches in Camrbidge, New Bedford, Framingham, Falmouth, Beverly, Framingham Southbridge, Lowell, Boston, Springfield, Falmouth, Beverly, and Eastham. These branches have been or will be replaced with offices located in state-owed buildings or other rent-free locations such as the former Attleboro Post Office, the Natick and Charlton Mass. Turnpike service centers, the Cape Cod Canal Visitor Center, and other locations in Peabody and Boston.
To improve customer service and minimize the impact of the branch closings, the RMV has enhanced its on-line express services so that drivers can perform more functions on-line, using the Registry’s website. This minimizes the need for trips to Registry branches.
The RMV in Boston, which houses the Driver Control Unit and the offices of the Massachusetts Board of Appeal of the Division of Insurance is currently open, but it is slated to close at the end of the year.
