BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles is beginning a drop-off service for certain transactions so customers can remain safer during the coronavirus pandemic.

The service will start Monday in Braintree and be rolled out at more Registry of Motor Vehicles locations on Aug. 10, the department announced Friday.

Customers choosing this option will be able to drop off appropriate paperwork for processing within a few business days.

"This alternative service channel will help meet increased RMV service demands during a time when services are limited by appointment-only due to the need to enforce social distancing to keep our customers and employees safe," Registrar Jamey Tesler said in a statement.

Some of the transactions eligible for the drop-off service include to registering and titleing a vehicle; transferring plates; and registration reinstatements.

Registration renewals will still be conducted exclusively online or by mail.
