The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles will handle all of the licensing and motor vehicle-related tasks for residents of Massachusetts. There are branches all over the state. Some branches also hold suspension hearings. If you need to attend a hearing, you must check with your local branch because not all of the branches hold suspension hearings.
