BostonThe Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) is announcing that the RMV Service Centers in Braintree, Plymouth, and Taunton will have the extended service hours of 8:00 a.m., to 6:00 p.m. each Friday until the Brockton Service Center reopens for business.  The hours are being extended to continue to provide customers with additional resources while the Brockton location remains temporarily closed due to flooding that occurred when a water pipe burst on January 19.

“We are pleased to extend the hours of service at these locations to ensure that customers have options and flexibility for conducting their business transactions while the Brockton Service Center remains temporarily closed,said Acting Registrar Jamey Tesler.  “The repairs at the Brockton location are ongoing at this time, and we apologize for any inconvenience to our customers.”

The Registry’s staff, who would work normally out of the Brockton location, remain temporarily reassigned to customer service centers in Taunton, Fall River, Braintree and Haymarket in Boston. 

Some RMV customers may be able to conduct transactions online or visit a AAA location if the customer is a member of AAA. Members of the public who need to visit a service center should note the following information.
