Prepare for the Road Test

You will not be permitted to take the driving test unless the motor vehicle you furnish is properly equipped, in good mechanical condition, and properly registered and inspected.

Is the Vermont Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL) or Enhanced Non-Driver ID (EID) acceptable for Real ID compliance?

Yes, the Vermont EDL & EID are designated as acceptable border-crossing documents by DHS under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI). Vermont EDL & EID are acceptable for official Federal purposes (i.e., boarding a commercial aircraft, accessing a federal facility, or entering a nuclear power plant).

What if my name has changed?

If your name is different than the one shown on your birth certificate or other document used to establish identity and date of birth, you must provide certified copies of the legal documents that connect the name on the document used to establish identity and date of birth to your current name. The following documents are acceptable.

Court-ordered name change.
This includes:

If I have temporary lawful status in the United States, will the Driver's License or ID card issued to me be different?

Your card will read “limited term” and the expiration date will coincide with the expiration of valid legal status obtained from documentation provided. If your lawful stay has no defined end or expiration date, you will have the option of choosing a 2 or 4 year card.

Why do I need to let the DMV know when my name and/or address changes?

Vermont law requires that an individual who has been issued: 1) a Vermont driver license, driver permit, non-driver identification card, and/or 2) a Vermont vehicle/motorboat/snowmobile registration, to notify the Vermont DMV of any change in name and/or address within 30 days of the date of the change. The DMV mails any correspondence (such as license renewal notices, vehicle registrations, etc.) to whatever address we have on our computer records for an individual. The information we have on our computer records reflects the most recent information you have supplied to us.

I live out-of-state ...do I have to come back to Vermont to take an alcohol treatment program?

If you live in another state it is possible for you to take an alcohol treatment program in that state. It is very important that you contact Vermont's Project CRASH at (802) 651-1574 prior to enrolling in a program outside of Vermont. Not all alcohol treatment programs are accepted and you must make sure that you participate in an acceptable program.
