RMV to Provide Same-Day Service for Vehicle Registration

Print Story | Email Story

BOSTON, Mass. — The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) is expanding the accessibility and availability of same-day walk-in services for required in-person registration-related transactions including registering a vehicle and transferring an existing registration to a new vehicle.

Appointments for these transactions will no longer be necessary and will be unavailable for scheduling as of Monday, September 26.

"The RMV continues to monitor its customer service levels and make enhancements that seek to provide convenient and flexible options for customers," said Registrar of Motor Vehicles Colleen Ogilvie. "Customers can conduct required in-person registration transactions at times that meet their availability, schedules and needs at locations that are accessible and convenient."

Customers are also encouraged to continue to conduct RMV registration transactions by working through their insurance agents and auto dealers who are able to complete bulk transactions in-person through Business 2 Business (B2B) services at select service center locations and electronically use the Electronic Vehicle Registration (EVR) Program. (The Chicopee RMV is strictly a B2B location and walk-ins cannot be conducted.) Transactions include new registrations and titles, registration transfers, cancellations and renewals, and license plate swap transactions. Customers can also visit AAA sites, if they are AAA members.

Any registration appointments that have been previously scheduled online to date will remain in place and be honored. Before visiting an RMV Service Center, customers are encouraged to contact their insurance agents to ensure they have the correct paperwork and will arrive prepared.

Appointments for learner’s permits, driver’s licenses, and Massachusetts identification cards will continue to be available on Mass.Gov/myRMV.

The RMV recommends that all customers visit RMV's Online Service Center to conduct over 40 transactions including: renewing a driver’s license, renewing a registration, paying a citation, requesting a hearing, and accessing a variety of other business transactions.

Pascual-Polanco Brothers Sentenced to Life for 2019 Homicide

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Chiry Omar Pascual-Polanco and Carlos Pascual-Polanco on Thursday were given life sentences without possibility for parole for the murder of 18-year-old Jaden Salois in 2019.

The brothers lured Salois, of Dalton, outside a Pittsfield home for a false drug deal and shot him in the back in the early morning hours on Jan. 20, 2019. Prosecutors say the killing was over allegations of stolen marijuana. 
During the sentencing at Berkshire Superior Court, several of Salios' family members gave impact statements that detailed his kind disposition and hopes for the future. They said it was unfair for him to be robbed of it.

"A piece of me is gone that will never be replaced," his mother Megan Bernardini wrote.

"Over the past 3 1/2 years, me and my family have experienced endless sleepless nights and have had never-ending thoughts of why this happened to Jaden and why this happened to us," his cousin Brianna Crucitti said. "We still don't know why it happened to him or why it happened to us."

Family members of Chiry Omar, 26, and Carlos, 22, called the verdict is an injustice, arguing that there was not sufficient provable evidence and that the brothers are innocent.  

They did not speak at the sentencing but offered statements to iBerkshires afterward.

Sister Marisela Pascual knew that she and her brothers had "no fighting chance" for their lives in this community and said it is clear that they didn’t commit the crime.
