Golf Cart-Con’t • Most grouped into neighborhood electric category • If it does not meet the requirements of RSA 259:66-b, 266:114, and 265:158, they cannot be registered. • NEV’s will need full safety inspection to get a passenger plate. If Electric, no OBD Test is required. • Our recommendation, is buy a car instead. • Seriously though, we advise customer to see if it will pass inspection first. Document Pile Document Pile • • • • Batch card Registration by size and in order processed Full sheets folded together like a book Secure document pile with 2 paper clips,2 rubber bands or 2 butterfly clips • CTA (title applications) in separate pile together like book. • Send in work daily-unless part of the plate release project Plate Release Releasing Plates • All plate release requests require the registration record to be viewed in MAAP by the clerk to ensure it meets one of the following requirements: • One owner gives written permission to another owner to use the plate and forfeits the rights to any remaining credits if the registration is valid. • Registration with requested plate has been expired more than a year and a day and the owner would like to re-register the vehicle with the previous plate. • Registration with requested plate is expired and the owner would like to register a new vehicle with the plate.

Fuel Codes Fuel codes • • • • • • • • • • C=Ethanol D=Diesel E=Electric G=Gas H=Hybrid electric vehicle M=Methanol N=Natural Gas O=Other T=Trailers only P=Propane Important to use the correct fuel code as other agencies use this data Projects • VPN • Printer project phase II- 3rd party software VPN What is VPN? VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. In simple terms it means that the town equipment and internet connection are used to access MAAP instead of using the existing T-1 lines from the state. Why do it? • Faster transaction processing • Allows multiple workstations to connect to MAAP • Ease of relocating equipment • No reliance on Carrier services (Fairpoint) • Business continuity (failover) is an option 2 Choices to connect • Browser towns have a choice of connecting by either a SSL-VPN (Secure Socket Layer) or a P2P-VPN (Point 2 Point) • 3rd party software towns have one option- the P2P-VPN connection **This project does require your town’s IT vendor to participate as there are many technical details** VPN Process • Town requests to learn more about the VPN process • MA desk sends the “Making the Right Choice” document • Town chooses which option would work best for them • MA desk sends the VPN pre-install survey specific to the connection method chosen • Town returns the survey which is turned over to IT • IT determines if there are other needs to be met OR a conversion date is established • We all work together to complete the migration successfully! Printer project phase II- 3rd party software Why switch??? • As part of being a pilot town for the Validator elimination project using third party software, the way you print the forms which go to the impact printers will be changing, as will the forms, so that they work with the Lexmark T640 which all are printing from MAAP . Forms that will print to the Lexmark • DSMV 255 Revenue Memo • RDMV 343a Municipal Permit (aka town only) • RDMV 111 Application for a Copy of an Application and Replacement plates/Decals • TDMV 23 Application for Certificate of Title • Check Validation Potential Law Changes Potential Law Changes • HB 292-relative to registration fees to private, commercial or pleasure vessels-moving forward adding $2 fee to Lakefund Fee • HB1149-relative to motor vehicle registrationsmoving forward- ability to utilize electronic reg in lieu of duplicate reg • HB1359-relative to Silver Star and Bronze Star Plates-study committee • SB374-establishing a committee to establish residency-killed • HB1598-relative to friends of animals plate-killed Law Change RSA 261:156 Collection of Insufficient Fund checks • RDMV306-Administrative Complaint form • May be fax to 603-271-1555 • Suspension of all registration privileges Questions?????
