Form MV-82 Instructions

The MV-82 Form consists of two pages, where an applicant is supposed to fill in the gaps. The gaps are divided into several parts, which include the following:

  1. Information about the registrant. In the first part, a registrant is supposed to enter personal and contact information, such as their name, date of birth, gender, driver's license ID, address, telephone number. If they have a co-registrant their personal and contact information must be designated here as well. In addition to this, a filer must state the purpose of filling out the form by checking the applicable box.
  2. Information about the vehicle. Here an applicant must report information about their vehicle, which includes its vehicle identification number, its year and make, body type, color, weight, seat capacity, odometer readings, etc.
  3. Information about the owner. If the registrant and owner are not the same, then this section must be filled out by the owner of the vehicle. Here they must state their name, date of birth, gender, address, license number, and designate if there is a co-owner. This part must be signed by all owners.
  4. Damage disclosure and vehicle modifications. If the vehicle was seriously damaged, or any vehicle modifications took place, an applicant must state it. All the modifications must be described in the application.
  5. Information about the vehicles for non-personal use. This section is supposed to be filled in only if the vehicle stated in the document is for non-personal use. Here a filer must designate the purpose of the vehicle by checking the box from the offered options or define it themselves, as well as check the insurance requirements and fill in the section for taxis (if any of these are applicable).
  6. Certification. The last section provides filers with important information about the penalties for providing invalid information. Here the applicant certifies that all statements made here are true, the vehicle is fully equipped as required by law, etc.

After completing the document, the applicant must sign it, date it, and submit it to the NY DMV. To learn which documents must be submitted with the form (depending on what a filer is applying for), the fee amount, and the address of a local NY DMV office, an applicant should visit the official website of the NY DMV.
