Under Maine Governor Mills’ Executive Order 53-A, the Wells Board of Selectmen voted July 11, 2020 as the deadline for vehicles that need to be re-registered from January through June 2020 to get registered without penalty. The Town of Wells encourages citizens with unregistered vehicles / motorcycles or registrations coming due, private sale or new registrations to get them registered by the deadline.  All municipalities, because of COVID 19, have large backlogs of vehicles needing registration. There are several ways in which vehicles can be registered, but you will be required to have the following information with you when registering or re-registering a vehicle:

  • Current Vehicle Insurance card
  • Current Registration
  • Mileage on the Vehicle
  • New or Lease Vehicle Registration- Dealer packet of forms

Methods of Vehicle Registration during Covid 19: 

  • Make an appointment at Town Hall to come in person to re-register or if new or private sale. Call 646-5113, Ext 0 or via online reservation at;
  • Re-registration of a vehicle previously registered in Wells, simply go online to re-register at under Service /Online Services to “Vehicle Registration”;
  • Complete a registration with Motor Vehicle after having paid excise at the Town Office by making an appointment at the Kennebunk Office by calling 207-985-4890 or  the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles by calling 207-624-9000;
