In full transparency, the following is a press release from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles to SOURCE media.
BOSTON – The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) is pleased to announce that it is expanding designated Wednesday in-person appointment hours for seniors from those 75 years of age or older to those 65 years of age or older.
Beginning March 24, 2021, customers who are 65 years of age or older will be able to book in-person transaction appointments in April during designated Wednesday senior hours online at Mass.Gov/RMV.
Services that are available for customers during designated senior hours include driver’s license and ID renewals and registration and title transactions.
Designated senior service hours began on September 2, 2020, to offer customers 75 and older dedicated times and flexibility to conduct their required in-person license or ID renewals while facilitating “social-distancing” protocols to keep customers and staff safe and healthy.
Senior appointment hours for license or ID renewals, and registration and title services appointments are offered on Wednesdays at the following 17 RMV Service Center locations (hours vary by location): Brockton, Danvers, Fall River, Greenfield, Lawrence, Leominster, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, New Bedford, North Adams, Pittsfield, Plymouth, Revere, South Yarmouth, Springfield, Watertown, and Worcester.
Below are the options for anyone 65 years of age or older to schedule in-person appointments during designated service hours:
- If you are a AAA member, you may make a reservation now to renew your driver’s license/ID or conduct certain other transactions at a AAA location. Visit aaa.com/appointments to schedule your visit.
- If you are not a AAA member, visit Mass.Gov/RMV to make a reservation to renew or conduct most other transactions at an RMV Service Center. Visit the Make/Cancel a Reservation transaction tab in the myRMV Service Center and select “Senior Transaction” for all available RMV transactions. Reservations can be booked two weeks in advance.

General appointments for license and ID renewals or registration and title transactions, as well as other essential in-person needs including drop-off registration and title services, are available to all customers at select locations throughout the business week.
Additional information on RMV service offerings and appointments can be found at www.Mass.Gov/RMV, including more than 40 transactions that can be conducted online, by mail, or by phone. The RMV recommends that all customers get ready online before their appointment.
