What is EVR?

Electronic Vehicle Registration (EVR) allows RMV-approved Permit Holders to process Registration transactions and Title applications through an electronic link to a Service Provider and the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). For additional details regarding the EVR Program, view the RMV’s Business Partner Website.

If you are an authorized Permit Holder, you may perform the following registry functions:

  • Registration Renewals
  • Issue new plates and decals
  • Transfer plates between vehicles
  • Collect title information
  • Plate Cancellations

Change a customer's address in the RMV database, if necessary
