The Town Clerk's Office is now on line with the State of New Hampshire for Motor Vehicle Registrations. We are able to order Vanity Plates, provide Conservation (Moose) Plates, provide duplicate copies of registrations, and a number of other services that we were not able to provide in the past.

No vehicle may be registered for another without notarized consent of that individual.

No information regarding an auto, individual, or a transaction may be released from our files.

New vehicles

If you purchased the car from a New Hampshire dealer, bring in the "town clerks copy" of the blue title application.
For all other purchases of vehicles 1999 and newer, bring in the title signed over to you. For older vehicles a bill of sale and title or if it was registered in NH bring a copy of the old registration.
If you do not have these items you will be asked to have a verification form completed.
You may use plates from another vehicle you sold or traded and "transfer" any remaining credits to the new vehicle. In order to perform a transfer, you must provide the town clerk's office with the current original registration of the vehicle you are transferring plates from.

New Resident Requirements

A title is required for all motor vehicles 1999 and newer. You will be asked to surrender the old state title to receive a New Hampshire one.
If you are leasing your car or have a lien on it, bring in your leasing papers and your current registration. In most cases we will only apply for a New Hampshire title at this time. For older vehicles (1996 and older) a current registration in your name will do.

You will be required to show proof of identity and residency.

We accept current licenses or a government issued photo ID. In addition, all foreign nationals must bring in their current passport and visa.

To prove residency we accept: Lease or rental agreements, current mail showing address and date posted, mail with yellow forwarding address sticker on it, current utility bills showing service at that address, current bank statement or signed closing statement or deed.
