Moving Out of State in Maine

Keep Your Maine Driver's License

Return Your Maine License Plate

Once you're settled in your new state, you must return your Maine license plates to theBureau of Motor Vehicles(BMV).

No Registration Refund

The only instance in which the BMV provides a type of registration refund is when you transfer your license plate to another vehicle. Even then, it's not a true refund; you're simply using up the rest of the registration credit.

Because you're moving to another state and won't have another vehicle registered in Maine, there is no registration refund or credit.
