Vehicle Registration

During the COVID-19 response time:

The state is allowing vehicle registrations to lapse 30 days beyond the date that the state lifts the civil emergency, however re-registrations can be completed locally by e-mailing or faxing a current insurance card to the town office and then call for a price to pay by phone or by calling ahead for a price and leaving a copy of your insurance and a check in the drop box at the town office and you will be called to let you know when your new registration will be in the box for pick up (average 24 hours). 

Renewal Registrations

You will need to provide the following information at the time of your registration renewal:
* Proof of insurance
* Previous registration
* The current mileage of the vehicle

New Registrations

In processing new registrations the town is authorized to collect sales tax on sales where the tax has not already been paid and process Maine Title Applications for vehicles manufactured in 1995 and newer.
