Abandoned Vehicle

How is an abandoned motor vehicle disposed of?

If the DMV issues a Certificate of Abandoned Motor Vehicle, title to the motor vehicle will be given to the holder of the Certificate of Abandoned Motor Vehicle, free from all claims. The DMV will issue an appropriate title or salvage title at no charge. Unless is it proven that intentionally inflicted damage or gross negligence has occurred, the State of Vermont (and any of its agents or employees) will not be liable to the owner for any damage to the motor vehicle during the period in which the state retains custody.
