Massachusetts is a Title state

MA is a Title state. When registering a motor vehicle in Massachusetts you must turn in the previous out of state title, or previous owner’s title.

Massachusetts is a Title state.

This means: when you register a vehicle in Massachusetts for the first time, you also have to get a new title.

If you move from out of state you will have to turn in your out of state title.

If you purchase the vehicle, you will have to turn over the signed-over previous title.

If you purchase a new vehicle, the vehicle will come with a Certificate of Origin in lieu of a title.

The cost for a Massachusetts title is $75.

The cost for MA registration (normal, passenger plates) is $50 (two year registration).

Massachusetts Title Law:

Massachusetts Title Law went into effect on September 1, 1972. This law requires that all motor vehicles and trailers be titled within ten (10) days of purchase. Passenger vehicles with a model year of 1980 and older, purchased before November 26, 1990 are exempt from titling. Any vehicle purchased after November 26, 1990 must be titled, excluding the following:

  • A vehicle owned by the United States, unless registered in accordance with the provisions of chapter ninety (90).
  • A vehicle owned by a manufacturer or dealer and held for sale even though incidentally moved on a highway or used for purposes of testing or demonstration, or a vehicle used by a manufacturer solely for testing.
  • A vehicle owned by a nonresident of the Commonwealth for which a currently effective certificate of title has been issued in the state of residence.
  • A vehicle on loan from the United States Government or from a vehicle manufacturer or distributor to the Commonwealth or a political subdivision thereof.

Massautoquote Driving Tip of the Day: The Three Second Rule

www.Massautoquote.com recommends we all practice good driving in Massachusetts.

In order to get the best auto insurance rates in Massachusetts, it’s important to have a good driving record. If you have no at-fault accidents and no moving violations over a 6 year period of time, then you will be rated as a state best, 99 driver.

www.Massautoquote.com Driving Tip of the Day:

Use the “three-second rule” to help prevent rear-end accidents!

The “three-second rule” accounts for your reaction time to the movements of the vehicle ahead and your vehicle’s stopping distance.

You should add more time if the road is slippery, if you’re being crowded by a tailgater, if you’re towing a trailer or if you’re driving a large truck.

The three-second rule:

When the vehicle ahead of you passes a stationary object, start counting:  1,001 … 1,002 …

The first second is your reaction time; the next two seconds account for your braking distance

You should not reach the object before you count to … 1,003. If you do, you are following too closely.

At a vehicle speed of 55 mph, the three-second rule creates a gap of 243 feet between cars.

Tips For Beginner Massachusetts Motorcycle Riders

Take the MA Rider Training Course. More than 90% of the motorcyclists involved in crashes are self-taught or learned from family or friends. In addition, you will be eligible for an additional 10% discount on your MA motorcycle insurance policy.

Riding a motorcycle in Massachusetts is challenging and fun. It can also be dangerous.

Much like your auto insurance policy, the cost of your motorcycle insurance will be determined by driving record, experience, town, year, make, model, and value of the bike.

Tips For Beginner Riders:

– Take the MA Rider Training Course. More than 90% of the motorcyclists involved in crashes are self-taught or learned from family or friends. In addition, you will be eligible for an additional 10% discount on your MA motorcycle insurance policy.

– Get your MA motorcycle learner’s permit by passing a knowledge test based on the MA drivers’ license manual. This test may be taken without an appointment at any full-service Registry of Motor Vehicles.

– To earn your MA motorcycle license, pass the Beginner Rider Course or the RMV’s road test.

– Wear protective riding gear. State law requires motorcycles and their passenger (also moped riders) to wear a helmet. State law also requires motorcyclists and their passengers to have eye protection. To better protect yourself from the elements and the road, wear a long sleeve shirt or jacket, long pants, over the ankle footwear, and full finger gloves.

– Insure, Register, and Inspect your motorcycle. There are mandatory and optional insurance coverages available for motorcycles. Obtain registration, license plate, and title for your motorcycle by having your MA insurance agent prepare and stamp a Registry Form 1 for you. Within 7 days of getting your motorcycle registered, get your MA inspection sticker. Each year you must have your motorcycle reinspected between January 1 and May 31.

– Share the road. Ride defensively and be courteous. Never try to save time by weaving through traffic. Use both electric and hand turn signals and your horn to communicate with other drivers. Position yourself on the road to avoid the blind spots fo drivers. Wear highly visible clothing to be seen by other drivers. Look for drivers taking left turns in front of you, especially at intersections — most crashed between cars and motorcycles occur this way.

– Have Fun!
