Plymouth RMV to Remain Closed for at Least Two More Weeks
PLYMOUTH — The Massachusetts RMV says its Plymouth service center will remain temporarily closed through "at least" Oct. 10, after a burst water pipe earlier this month forced staffers to move to service centers in Taunton and South Yarmouth.
An announcement from the state's Registry of Motor Vehicles on Thursday noted that the continued closure is due to ongoing repairs and "additional steps" that must be taken before the center reopens.
Officials did not say what specific steps must be taken before reopening the center.
Located at 40 Industrial Park Rd., the Plymouth RMV was closed after a water pipe burst in the ceiling on Sept. 11, drenching the offices and requiring the removal of damaged building materials and repairs to the building.
RMV customers with appointments in Plymouth are being redirected to conduct their transactions online, at AAA branches, or at nearby service center locations in Taunton and South Yarmouth.
Road tests scheduled in Plymouth will still be conducted at the Plymouth RMV location, however.
Registry staffers who normally work in Plymouth are being temporarily reassigned to the Taunton and South Yarmouth service centers.
The Taunton RMV is located at 1 Washington St., and the South Yarmouth RMV is at 1084 MA-28.
"We appreciate the patience of our customers while the service center location in Plymouth is cleaned up following water damage at the facility on September 11," said Registrar of Motor Vehicles Colleen Ogilvie.
"Customers who need a road test can still be served at the Plymouth center but other customers with other transaction needs should visit our website to see if the transaction can be done online or plan to be served at another service center or make an appointment to visit an AAA branch, if the customer is a member of AAA."
Officials said many RMV transactions can be conducted online at mass.gov/rmv.
