Registrations

Motor Vehicle Registration

Vehicles can be registered during regular office hours. Please bring your current registration(s) and driver’s license with you. If you are registering a vehicle that is new to you, you must present a Statement of Origin or a valid Title for vehicles year 2000 to the present or for trailers 3001 lbs. and over. Vehicles older than this or trailers less than 3001 lbs., require a bill of sale and one of the following:

2. A previous NH registration

(available at the office or online on the NH-DMV website)
