A registration, including a temporary registration, of a vehicle, including, without limitation, a motor vehicle, all-terrain vehicle, watercraft or snowmobile, or a trailer required to be registered in this State that expires during the period of a state of emergency declared by the Governor (state of emergency was declared on March 15, 2020) in accordance with Title 37-B, section 742 due to the outbreak of COVID-19 is deemed extended until 30 days following the termination of the state of emergency.
Registering Newly Purchased Vehicles:
On March 23, 2020 the Governor authorized the temporary stay of the requirement to register a vehicle after the transfer of ownership or title. This will be in effect for the duration of the emergency. If a person can register normally through their municipality or Bureau of Motor Vehicle Office before the end of the emergency, then they should do so immediately.
In the event a person or company purchasing a motor vehicle or trailer in a “private sale” which does
not include a temporary registration plate, and subsequently cannot register that vehicle due to the
existing emergency, this document may serve as a temporary registration.
