Problems renewing boat trailer registration

Rate this topic

Has anyone had any issues trying to renew their boat trailers online?  I tried to do mine and it won’t let me renew. Keeps saying “no active insurance on file”. I never had issues before. Is there some new rules where trailers need separate insurance?

There were some changes this year. New forms too I think. I have mine printed out to visit the RMV

It’s always been required to have proof of insurance stamped on the form. You have to go in person to the RMV or send in the stamped form by mail.
 

I’ve never been able to do mine online.

RMV switched to a new system,I had problems with my truck reg.renewal.

After problem was resolved they still gave me the wrong lic.plate sticker,

It said 2021 instead of 2022.When you renew make sure your new paper

reg.matches your plate sticker or you're going to RMV again,like I did.

The last thing I feel like doing is having to go to the RMV. I hope they can sort this out over the phone. 

You'd have better luck getting Santa Claus on the phone than the RMV !

Just a heads up, I was able to renew my trailer registration online this morning. Maybe enough people were having problems that they actually fixed it.

How long are trailer registrations for here in MA? I cant remember if it was 1 or 2 years.

Thanks for the heads up. I was just able to renew mine online. 
I think that the registration is just for 1 year.

Only problem I encounter is that  I can’t renew my trailer online and I need the insurance stamp from my agent every year.  Yet my other vehicles can be renewed online.
