Hawley Motor Vehicle would like to thank you for your patience during this transition to the new State Motor Vehicle computer system. The State still has a long list of problems that they are addressing.

Hawley Motor Vehicle staff have been in constant contact with the state to have these issues resolved and we are trying to make this transition as easy as possible for our customers.  

We will do our best to process your motor vehicle transaction. Unfortunately, if the State computer System rejects the information we will not be able to process your work. We would then ask you to try again later.  Thank you for your patience.
