Due to a recent change in New Hampshire Motor Vehicle Laws, the City of Lebanon must now require customers to present photo identification for all motor vehicle transactions when conducted in person. The photo identification must be issued by a government entity such as a state driver’s license or non-driver’s ID, passport or military ID. The purpose of this law change is to help prevent fraud and identity theft.
- If you cannot come to our office in-person but would like to send someone on your behalf to register your car, that is still acceptable. The person who registers on your behalf will be asked to show his or her photo identification.
- If you are a new resident from another state, your out-of-state identification will still be accepted. You do not need to first obtain a New Hampshire driver’s license or non-driver’s ID.
- Payments for motor vehicle transactions made online or through the mail do not require a photocopy of your photo identification. Proceed as usual.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change, please do not hesitate to contact our office during regular business hours Monday through Friday.
