Online Cancellation of Plate/Registration

Online Cancellation of Plate/Registration

We have received a training update from the RMV regarding their “Cancel My Plate/Registration” transaction which was added to the “Online Branch” transactions available on the RMV’s website. The training update came nearly a week after the launch of the new transactions. According to the update:

Cancel My Plate/Registration

Customers can now quickly and conveniently complete an online real time plate return transaction without going to a branch.

Customers can cancel their registration plates online:

  • If they physically have at least one plate in their possession.

Plates that cannot be returned online are:

  • Dealer/Section 5
  • Apportioned
  • State, Municipal and Authority

If they do not have at least one plate in their possession, they must complete an Affidavit For Cancellation of Registration for Lost Plate(s) . They must either bring this completed form to a branch office, or mail it to the address on the form.

It’s easy to complete this online transaction as customers will need only to enter their:

  • MA Registration Number
  • MA License/Permit Number
  • Email Address or
  • MA FID Number if the vehicle is registered to a company/corporation
  • Email Address

Lessees will also be able to use this transaction to cancel a plate as long as their license number is listed on the registration record in the lessee information section.

Once this no fee transaction has been processed, customers will be able to print out a Plate Return Receipt in PDF format.

A plate return receipt is an important document that will enable customers to:

  • Cancel their vehicle insurance
  • Provide proof of when the vehicle was taken off the road
  • Request an excise tax abatement

Customers are instructed online to destroy their old plates, as presently, there is no collection site available. Customer can also recycle old plates if their town accepts them at their local recycle center.

As always you can leave us a comment below, follow us on Twitter, or head to for anything else.
