RMV System Access

The Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) allows Business Partners to access certain RMV data and records. The RMV has many programs for different businesses within the Commonwealth. These programs are not for residents looking to access their driving/vehicle information.

Direct RMV System Access

There are many levels of access based on business needs and the program in which you would like to participate. If the program you need access to is not listed below, you can email the RMV to determine if your business qualifies for access: rmvbusinesspartners@dot.state.ma.us.

The RMV methods of access are provided below and will vary depending on the program in which you are participating: 

Business Portal: This real-time service option allows individual users to log into a web-based portal displaying native RMV screens. 

eServices Portal: This service facilitates individual users logging into a portal designed specifically for your business needs. Your designated eServices Administrator will maintain access for your End Users. No configuration or set up is needed for this method of access. The eServices Portal is a secure website each End User logs into. Your business must designate an eServices Administrator who will maintain access for your End Users and grant third (3rd) party access for any users outside your organization.

Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) Batch Files: This option is used to send and receive what are commonly known as Batch files, using the RMV’s SFTP file transfer solution called MOVEit

Web Services: This option is a real time data exchange between the user's system and the RMV. The Web Services allow users to integrate the sending and receiving of RMV data into their system and business processes.
