Municipal BMV Data Transfer System
The Municipal BMV Data Transfer System was created by InforME, in partnership with the BMV, to simplify the process through which towns receive BMV preprint data and upload E-Reg data to the BMV.
There is no fee to use this service.

How does the BMV Data Transfer System work?
The Municipal BMV Data Transfer System allows the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to retire the 3 1/2" diskettes used to support the exchange of data with towns for registration. Previously, the BMV has been required to send monthly preprint updates to municipalities via diskette. The Municipal Data Transfer System allows the BMV to send this data electronically via the Internet. Municipal motor vehicle agents are able to download this data and update their software.
The Municipal Data Transfer System also allows municipalities to send their weekly or daily motor vehicle registration data and reports to BMV electronically via the Internet.
Download BMV Preprints
The Municipal Data Transfer System allows municipalities to access BMV preprint data. The data is posted to the service by BMV each month. An email notification is sent to each municipality when new data is available for download. Once the preprint data has been downloaded, it can be imported by a municipality using their current registration software.
Upload BMV Ereg Data
The Municipal BMV Data Transfer System allows municipalities to upload BMV E-Reg data. This process replaces the 3 1/2" diskette that municipalities produce and mail to BMV along with their paper reports. Paper reports and money are still required to be sent to BMV.
How to Participate
The Municipal BMV Data Transfer System is available statewide to all municipalities. For more information about access to the system and training, contact BMV's Audit Division at 207.624.9000.
