Motor Vehicle Registration


Automobile registration for Farmington residents requires payment of an excise tax to the Town and a registration fee to the State of Maine.  Because the Town of Farmington is a full registration agent for the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), most first-time registrations and re-registrations can be processed by the Town, eliminating the need for a separate transaction with the BMV.
