Probably the first concern of new residents is their automobiles. If you are coming from another state and your vehicles are 2000 or newer models, we need to convert your out of state title to a NH Title. We will need the original title OR current registration if you have a loan on the vehicle. You will need to fill out an address change form and bring in proof of residence such as a utility bill or rental agreement, etc. We cannot accept P.O. Boxes as proof of residency.As of January 1, 2015 motor vehicles year 2000 and newer need titles, a vehicle that is 1999 or older, a person must present to the clerk at the time of registering either a previously issued New Hampshire certificate of registration or copy thereof (temporary registrations do not meet the requirements of previously issued), a valid title (NH or out of state) or a vehicle identification verification form (VIN Verification) completed by an authorized agent named on the form (these forms may be obtained at the Town Clerks Office or from the police department) and a bill of sale. Vehicles 2000 and newer need a title and a bill of sale.Most passenger vehicles can be completed at the town level, heavier vehicles, over 26,000 lbs. have to be completed at a State DMV Office. After you have established your residency and registered your car, it is time to transfer your out of state license to a NH license at the nearest DMV. Keene 15 Ash Brook Court, Keene, NH 03431 and Milford 4 Meadowbrook Drive, Milford NH 03055 both do licensing on Mon - Friday; the fee for the license is $50.00 and both are open 8:00am to 4:30pm.

If someone else other than the owner of the vehicle comes in to register, they must have the prior registration and written permission from the owner of vehicle to perform that transaction along with a piece of mail showing the physical address in Rindge.

Anyone wishing to get a copy of a birth, marriage or death record, and this includes genealogy searches, must pay a $15.00 search fee for each record - whether it is found at this office or not. Birth records after 1900 are not open to public. You must prove you are a direct relation. If you are looking for a death record, be sure the person died in NH. If they were a resident, but died in MA or some other state, we will not have that record. You would need to get it from the state in which that death occurred. Marriage & Death records are not open to public after 1936 without the same proof of relationship.
Marriage License filing fee is $50.00. You will be asked to fill out a 2 sided form with information about you and your parents. You will also fill out a form asking how many copies of the Marriage Certificate you will want after your wedding. The cost is $15 for one copy and $10 for each additional copy. You will need this for changing your name on your driver's license and with the Social Security dept.
You must provide: 1.) original documents of birth from your city or town where born (raised seal required) 2.) if widowed or divorced, those documents which have been filed and have a docket date and signature of the filing clerk/death certificate. If your divorce took place in MA be sure to bring in the page that says ABSOLUT. This is required. 3.) a photo ID such as a driver's license or passport.
Since a marriage filing takes about 30 minutes, we ask couples not to show up less than a half hour before closing. See hours above.
You can request the paperwork ahead of time via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). This cuts down on your wait time in the office and gives you time to fill in the paperwork without feeling rushed.
Payments may be made by cash, check, Master Card, Visa, Discover & American Express (2.75% convenience fee is added to the total for credit or debit transactions).
The next item most people ask about is, "What do I do about my dog?" All dogs from the time they get their first rabies shot as puppies, must be licensed. Fees are: $9.00 not altered, $6.50 altered & $6.50 for puppies under 7 months old, first dog owned by a senior citizen (65+) $2.00 and $20.00 Group license (4+ dogs). Please bring documentation from your veterinarian showing rabies inoculation with rabies tag number and the expiration; also if the dog has been neutered or spayed, bring that documentation. Without these papers we cannot license the dog. If during the move you lost these documents, I will accept a fax or email from the veterinarians' office directly to my office; fax is 603-899-2108, email: email@example.com. Though cats must have a current rabies shot, we do not license them. Also the leash law is in affect (RSA 466:13-a); no dog shall be allowed to roam freely from their yard, each time dog is found roaming the dog officer may charge $25.00 per incident per dog. Every year the dog license must be renewed by APRIL 30th. Please check your rabies expiration in March to make sure it is current, I cannot renew the license if shot has expired.read more
