Change can happen quick and change can happen extremely slow. In this case, it seems, a little of both.
The old triplicate “RMV-1” form (Application for Massachusetts Title & Registration) has been around forever. Although branches have closed and branches have opened, the Registry of Motor Vehicles “experience,” always seems to remain the same. As of December 12, 2019 the RMV will no longer accept the familiar, triplicate RMV-1 and RMV-3 forms.
Replacing them is the new, single-copy: Registration and Title Application (RTA)
The RMV currently has a Registration and Title Application (referred to as an RMV-1) and a Registration and Title Amendment Form (referred to as an RMV-3). With ATLAS Release 2, these two forms have been combined into one — the new Registration and Title Application (RTA). This new RTA form supports additional information the RMV will use in their business processes after ATLAS R2 implementation. Examples include the garage address, expanded sales and use tax information, slight changes to the vehicle description, and a general layout that follows the screen flow in the ATLAS system.
