Can I get a temporary plate? (261:57 Twenty-Day Registration) Not at the Kingston Town Office, but if you go to Epping DMV or a sub-station you will be able to purchase temporary plates. With your sales agreement and driver’s license, you can get 20 day plates. This would be a case when purchasing a car in Massachusetts because there is a delay before you receive the title to register with the Town.
Can I give someone my plate? Yes, but the original owner of the plate needs to write a release letter, releasing that plate to you and relinquish all credits and refunds. The plate number needs to be in that letter and the old owner needs to sign it. We have forms in the office if you need one.
Please remember that the office performs by rules and regulations that our State Representatives put into legislation, which forms RSA’s and rules. RSA’s can all be found on the State of NH, DMV website for everything we do in the office connected with motor vehicles. The office will help in any way we can but we cannot change or go above the rules that we operate by.
As always it is a pleasure serving the Town of Kingston.
