Electronic Vehicle Registration (EVR)

The EVR system is supplied through a service provider who works to provide end users with a digital system that gives you the ability to register and title vehicles electronically.

What is EVR?

Electronic Vehicle Registration (EVR) lets RMV approved end users process registration transactions and title applications through an electronic link to a service provider and the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV). If you are an authorized End User, you may perform the following registry functions:

  • Registration renewals

  • Issue new plates and decals

  • Transfer plates between vehicles

  • Collect title information

  • Process certain renewals

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

  • Vehicle registration

 

EVR benefits

EVR offers you and your customers several benefits:

  • Providing immediate, remote registration of vehicles

  • Eliminating the need to wait in line for vehicle registrations

  • Providing better and more efficient RMV service remotely

  • Providing access to the most up-to-date information for your customers

  • Providing the ability to update customer data instantly

  • Reducing the dependency on RMV customer service center offices

Dealers and insurance agents win because they save time and money, customers win because they get one-stop shopping without the wait for registration and title application processing, and the RMV wins because customers can be served efficiently.
