Vermont does not require that you maintain proof of insurance on file with the Department, however, proof of insurance is required when:
Unless specifically stated on the permit, movement is restricted to daylight hours and shall be made between thirty minutes before sunrise and thirty minutes after sunset. No movement is allowed on state highways for loads in excess of 108,000 pounds, or over 10' 6" wide, or over 100' long on any Saturday, Sunday or Friday afternoon between July 1st and Labor Day. No movement is allowed on holidays observed by the State of Vermont.
Single trip permits are valid for 10 working days. If the move is not made during this time-frame a new permit must be purchased.
You may apply for a permit during off-hours but a permit will not be issued until normal business hours, Monday through Friday from 7:45am to 4:30pm (except holidays).
Permits can be obtained Monday through Friday from 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. (except holidays - see schedule of holidays. In most cases it should take approximately 45 minutes for a response from the permit clerk. However, a 4-hour turn-around time has been established to take the Unit's workload into consideration during busy periods.
