What do I need to re-register my vehicle?
Please visit the Secretary of State's Online Services webpage to re-register your vehicle. To expedite the re-registration process you will need your expiring registration, insurance card, and odometer reading.

If you have purchased a new or used vehicle from a Maine-licensed dealer, you may pay excise tax and complete the registration process through the Finance Department office (27 Pine Street). You may also purchase new license plates or transfer license plates from another vehicle you own.

For vehicles purchased private sale or out of state, the excise tax only will be collected at the Treasurer's office. The remainder of the registration process will be completed at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
