Transactions for documents mailed and dropped off are being completed as quickly as possible, in the order in which they are received. The average turnaround time is approximately four weeks. The DMV appreciates the public’s patience as it navigates through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vehicle and Boat Registration Services  

This service is offered by appointment only at DMV offices.  Make an appointment here. (Please do not schedule an appointment if you have already dropped off documents at DMV.) 

In addition, DMV offers the service options below: 

In-Person Services at Alternative Locations:

The Department of Motor Vehicles will be collaborating with the Dealer Community to provide registration services to Connecticut residents who have purchased a vehicle from a private owner. Dealers can process Passenger plates, Combination plates or Commercial plates up to 18,000 GVWR. (The DMV will continue to offer registration services, but is providing customers with an alternate option.)

Registration services offered by the dealers listed below will require two checks. One is for the registration transaction which will be processed through the DMV’s online system, and the second will be forwarded by the Dealer to the Connecticut DMV to pay the sales tax.   (This is necessary as the Dealer did not sell the vehicle and therefore has no ability to collect the sales tax through their automated system.)

Please note that every dealer will have different times, service options and service fees. Contact the dealers/titling services listed below for appointment information. 

For all other DMV-related questions pertaining to specific procedures, please contact the DMV. Dealerships are only able to make appointments.

DMV Time-Saving Tip for New Registration - Proof of Ownership 

If a title is required, be sure it has been properly signed over in the name of the person registering the vehicle. This is usually on the back of the certificate of title.
