Who Fills out the RMV-1 Form?

If you submit the RMV-1 application form to register a vehicle purchased from a dealer, it is typically the dealer who provides you with a completed form and the supporting documentation. You are required to present the document to your insurance company for the proper stamping. Some insurance companies submit the form to the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) by themselves; other firms will return the document for you to submit.

In other cases, the form is filled out by your insurance agent. Note, that both the dealer and an insurance agent can leave some fields blank. It is your responsibility to ensure that the form contains all the relevant information. If you notice the relevant fields are blank, you must fill them out.

Where Do I Get an RMV-1 Form?

The fully or partially filled RMV-1 Form is usually provided to you by the dealer you buy your vehicle from. You can also receive the document from your insurance company.

RMV-1 Form Instructions

The Massachusetts vehicle registration form consists of two copies. Submit the original copy to the RMV office and keep the registrant copy. This copy is your Certificate of Registration for the described vehicle. The law requires you to keep it with your driving license or in some easily accessible place in your car.

The fields of the form are self-explanatory. The latest version of the document was complemented with Height and Sex fields (Fields 25 a and b, 27 a and b) due to the Registration Residency Requirements. Besides, if you register the vehicle as an organization, Field 50 must contain a signature and your printed name.

The instructions for RMV-1 Form are simple. For the RMV to accept the completed form, use the following tips:

  1. Provide all the relevant information. If any piece of information is missed, the clerk may ask you to fill out the required fields at the counter;
  2. The information on the form may be filled out on a computer, handwritten, or entered by both methods (e.g., your insurance agent or dealer completes the form electronically and emails it to you; you print out the form and enter the missing information with a pen). If all the entered information is legible, the document will be accepted;
  3. The form must not contain any alterations, erasures, or white-outs. Otherwise, it may be rejected;
  4. All the information provided must match the supporting documents;
  5. The properly completed form requires an insurance stamp;
  6. The insurance stamp on the form must be up-to-date. If the stamp is more than 30 days old, it is not considered a valid proof of insurance;
  7. Mind the provided dates. The effective date or change date of your insurance policy must be in the future or your application will be rejected;
  8. The documents with electronic insurance stamps are acceptable;
  9. Print out the document on the 8 ½ x 11 white paper. The form printed on card stock, the color paper will not be accepted, as well as the form of any other size than 8 ½ x 11.

If the RMV finds any issues with your form, the clerks will help you to fill out the document so that it can be accepted. If it is not possible, the official will provide you with a Registration/Title Return Slip clearly indicating the reason for the rejection.
