Welcome to NH Motor Vehicle Kiosk presented to you by the City of Portsmouth, NH.
This web site provides Portsmouth residents with an easy way to estimate the costs of registering their motor vehicles.
We do this by matching your vehicle to similar vehicles in our database of actual Registrations and providing you with both
the average cost and the highest cost for those similar vehicles.
