How to Register a Car in Vermont

registration vermont

If you are looking to get a new start, then moving to a new state is your best bet. Vermont is one of the most peaceful and serene states in the country. If you are planning a move to this great state, then you will have to take the time to figure out what you need to do to be in compliance with the laws of the state. Getting your car registered is one of the first things you need to do. You have 60 days from the time that you move to Vermont to get your car registered in order to avoid a late fee. Going to the DMV in person is the only way you will be able to get the car registered. The following are some of the things that you will need to bring with you to get your car registered:

  • Proof of car insurance
  • A completed copy of the Registration/Tax/Title Application
  • A current odometer
  • The car’s title with your name on it
  • The record of the amount of tax you have paid
  • The VIN of the car

In most cases, residents of Vermont who buy a car from a dealership will not have to worry about handling the registration on their own. Usually the dealership that you are purchasing the car from will make sure that the car gets registered. If you are letting the dealership handle the registration of your vehicle, be sure to get all of the paperwork so that you will not have problems getting a license plate.

When buying a car from a private seller, you will need to take the following things into the DMV in order to get your registration:

  • Proof that you have car insurance
  • A completed Registration/Tax/Title Application
  • A bill of sale
  • If the car is new, then you will need the Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin

When getting your car registered, here are the fees that you will have to pay:

  • Passenger vehicles can be registered for one year for $70 or two years for $129
  • Electric vehicles can be registered for one year for $69 or two years for $127
  • A motorcycle can be registered for one year for $44 or two years for $88

Before you are able to get your car registered in Vermont, you will need to get a safety inspection. For more information on this process, be sure to visit the Vermont DMV website.
