The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles [RMV] will move from its location on Main St. in Worcester.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation [MassDOT] confirmed on Friday, April 23, that its RMV Worcester Service Center will move to Southwest Commons Plaza at 50 Southwest Cutoff in Worcester. The RMV offices will sit inside the former location of Big Y.
The Worcester office of the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance [DTA], formerly on Sudbury St. in downtown Worcester, opened in the Southwest Commons Plaza in March 2020.
MassDOT recently completed its competitive procurement process to select the new location. It did not provide a timeline for opening of the new location.
MassDOT said it expects the large parking lot at the Southwest Commons Plaza to provide ample free parking for both customers and workers when the location opens.
The RMV was reportedly considering a move since as early as 2019. The current RMV building on Main St. was constructed in 1990.
