Overview of Maine RMV Forms
Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) Forms used by Maine’s RMV for registering vehicle related transactions like for issuing new number plate or a new title for a newly bought vehicle. Additionally, the form is also used for transferring current title or plate of a vehicle to new purchase. The registrations are used by the RMV to calculate and collect Maine excise tax for the asset.
The RMV offers different types of forms including Maine Registration Form, IRP Schedule C Form, and Maine Fuel Decal Application. From permit forms to ID renewal application, license forms, title forms, and registration of a vehicle RMV forms can be filled for multiple purposes.
The various elements added to the RMV form are added to gather all the necessary details of the vehicle, its owner, title along with the name of the lien holder or bank if the vehicle is purchased on loan. Any change in the title alerts the Maine RMV about the new vehicle owner and the info is shared with lien holder/ bank that holds the title until the loan is settled.
