My vehicle’s registration and my driver’s license are marked for Non-Renewal at the Registry of Motor Vehicle?

According to a Supreme Judicial Court ruling in April, 1996 and subsequent Registry of Motor Vehicle regulations, cities and towns must issue a final notice to the taxpayer stating that they plan to ask the Registrar of Motor Vehicles to prohibit renewal of his/her registration until the excise bill is settled. If the notice goes unanswered, such a request will be made. The Registrar will prevent renewal of the vehicle registration along with the owner’s driver’s license until receiving notice that the bill has been paid.
