Crash Reports Online at MassDOT

“The MassDOT (formerly the MA Registry of Motor Vehicles) announced a new service to the website.

Motorists can now order crash reports online at the Registry of Motor Vehicle’s virtual branch. The RMV maintains the state’s database of crash reports which are completed by law enforcement officers who may investigate a crash. Drivers involved in a crash are also required by law to complete an operator report on the circumstances of the crash and submit it to the RMV if property damages exceed $1,000 or there is personal injury.”

Registrar Rachel Kaprielian says RMV customers can now more quickly search for and copy crash reports often needed in vehicle insurance claims.

“The RMV receives requests for more than 3,000 crash reports per month by mail, often taking up to 3 weeks to certify and mail back to the customer. The new crash report web service will enable the RMV to process and deliver requests by e-mail within 24 hours.”

Required Documentation

You will need a valid email address, your driver’s license and the appropriate documentation to complete your transaction.

Search/Police Crash Report request – $20.00. No additional fee will be required for a Certified police crash report. Currently, only crash reports filed by state or local MA police agencies are available.

“Among the other online services added to the RMV website are license renewal, ID’s and registrations, ordering a Fast Lane transponder and driving record and searching for a title or lien. The RMV’s virtual branch now processes 1.8 million transactions a year.”

As always, leave us a comment or head to for anything else.
