Register a Vehicle in Maine

In Maine, all vehicles must be properly registered to operate on the roads and highways in the state. If you’re a new resident to the state and your vehicle is still registered in another state, you will have 30 days to properly register your vehicle in Maine.

Where to Register – Unlike many states, if you purchase your vehicle with a new car dealership or any dealership, the dealer will not complete your registration for you. You will be responsible, no matter where you procure your vehicle, to go in person and register the vehicle on your own. To register your vehicle, you will need to go to your local BMV location, prepared to present all necessary documents for registration of your vehicle.

Needed to Register – In order to register your vehicle, you will be required to appear in person and present the following documents:

  • A receipt showing you’ve paid your excise tax
  • If it is a private purchase you will also need to pay a 5.5% Maine sales tax that would be based on the price you paid for the vehicle
  • If the vehicle you register is brand new, you must provide the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) sticker, or you may submit a copy of the sticker.
  • A bill of sale
  • The yellow and white copy of your registration application
  • Provide the blue title application, for vehicles newer than 1995 only
  • If purchased from a private party, present the title that has been signed over to you by the previous owner of the vehicle
  • Proof of auto insurance
  • Maine state Driver’s license
  • Be prepared to pay a $33.00 titling fee and any additional fees required for registration
