After verifying all information, sign the RMV-1 application.
Along with the completed RMV-1 application, you must submit one of the following documents:
  • A Certificate of Origin (new vehicles only), or
  • The previous owner's title, if a titled vehicle (model year 1980 and newer), or
  • The bill of sale and proof of last Registration, if a non-titled vehicle.

I'm in the same boat. Live in MA and want to buy a car in NH.

Can I use a photocopy of the registration with the bill of sale, or does it have to be the original registration?

While I applaud your ability to search and find something reasonably close to your problem (albeit a 5 year old thread), you seem to have failed to grasp the actual response and answer in the above posts.

2. The completed RMV-1 must be accompanied by one of the following documents:
A manufacturers Certificate of Origin (new vehicles only), or
The previous owner’s Certificate of Title, Dealer Re-Assignment form if applicable, or
The previous registration and bill of sale for vehicles that are exempt because of their age.

3. Federal and Massachusetts's laws require that the seller(s) state the mileage upon transfer of ownership. Also, both buyer(s) and seller(s) are required to sign and hand print their name and date the transfer document. If the previous title has a space for a sales price, the price must be filled in. If the previous title does not have a space for a sales price, a bill of sale showing the sales price must be submitted.

4. Take the completed RMV-1 application and supporting documents to the nearest full service RMV center.

It's the RMV. They operate on the motto "It Depends".

They're telling us that we should have bank statements from 2 banks along with passport, birth certificate, social security card and pay stub with name/address to get real ID. This is well beyond what's listed as required. But....you know....RMV.

The pro answer is if you don't like the answer you get at an RMV branch.....drive to another one.
