What to Bring:
If a boat, snowmobile, or ATV is purchased from a private person, please bring an old registration if available. It contains all the information needed to do a new registration. If an old registration is not available, please bring the ME number (registration number on the side of the boat or vehicle) and the serial numbers. A bill of sale is also required.  The registrations can be completed and, if applicable, sales tax paid at Brewer City Hall.

If a recreational vehicle is purchased from a dealership, a green sales tax form is required for the registration.

Boats
Boat registrations are subject to excise tax. The amount of the tax is based on the length of the boat, the age of the boat, and the horsepower of the motor. The registration fee is based on the horsepower of the motor. An agent fee of $1.00 is also collected. Boat excise tax must be paid in the owner’s town of residence regardless of where the boat is docked. Boat registrations expire December 31 each year.

Lake and River Protection stickers are to be issued with all boat registrations that use Maine’s lakes and waterways.  The fee for the Resident sticker is $10, and $20 for Non-resident, in addition to all other registration fees. The stickers are attached to the registration sticker itself. It is unlawful to operate a motorboat or personal watercraft on inland waters without this sticker. The purpose for the milfoil sticker is to prevent the introduction of Invasive Aquatic Plants to Maine waters. The sale of the stickers fund the prevention program.

Snowmobiles
Snowmobile registrations are $40.00 plus a $1.00 agent fee. Registrations expire June 30 each year. All snowmobiles operated in the State of Maine must be registered in Maine. The State of Maine no longer has reciprocity with any other state or province on snowmobile registrations.

Non Resident snowmobile fees for the 3 day registration are $43.00 plus $1.00 agent fee.  A season registration is $88.00 plus a $1.00 agent fee.

ATV registrations are $33.00 plus a $1.00 agent fee for residents.   Non- resident ATV registrations are $68.00 plus a $1.00 agent fee.  They expire June 30 each year. If any of these registrations are a first time registration the agent fee is $2.00.
