Welcome to the Vermont DMV
Prohibited Idling of Motor Vehicles
The Vermont law regarding idling of motor vehicles has been in effect for nearly one year. The Department of Motor Vehicles is partnering with other agencies, associations and individuals on a public information effort to inform motorists of the idling law and the related health issues.
The following link is to a video on Idle Free Fleets Training, which was produced by the Certification for Sustainable Transportation at the University of Vermont. bit.ly/IdleFreeFleets
The video takes approximately 45 minutes to view, has a short quiz, and can be completed at your own pace. Please take the time to view the video, we think you will find it very informational, and feel free to share it with assorted businesses and individuals in your community.
Vermont License Types
Real ID: Required for flying on commercial aircraft or for access to certain federally controlled facilities (federal courts, federal buildings, nuclear power plants).
Privilege Card: Will be marked “Not for Federal Identification” to indicate card is not Real ID compliant.
Enhanced (EDL): U.S. citizens returning home from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean or Bermuda, by land or sea, are required to present a U.S. Passport or an Enhanced License/ID. Must be Vermont resident AND U.S. Citizen. An EDL is both Real ID and EDL.
Registration Plate Visibility Issues
The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has commenced a public awareness campaign to address the issue of proper display and visibility of license plates. Partnering with DMV on this effort are inspection stations, car dealerships and law enforcement officers.
