It is unlawful for a nonresident student to fail to file a nonresident driver statement with the police department located in the same city or town as the school or college attended, in accordance with Section 3 of Chapter 90 of the Massachusetts General Laws. Failure to file such statement is punishable by a fine not to exceed $200.

Pursuant to M.G.L. ch.90 s.3, every nonresident enrolled as a full-time student who operates a motor vehicle in Massachusetts that is registered in another state during any period beginning September 1st of any year and ending on August 31st of the following year must file a RMV “Nonresident Driver Statement” with the Boston Police Department (BPD).

BPD will then send SUPD a copy of the completed form and SUPD will issue the student a RMV nonresident student decal. The decals will be issued through the Sergeant’s office, Sawyer A-03. The forms will be available both at dispatch, Donahue Lobby and the Sergeant’s office. Forms are also available through the RMV website.
