Registration

Relating to vehicle registration.

How soon after I register my vehicle do I have to get it inspected?

Vehicles not displaying a valid Vermont inspection sticker must be inspected within 15 days of registration. If the vehicle is operated on a public highway within this 15-day period (without a valid inspection sticker affixed) the vehicle must still be in good mechanical condition and meet the Vermont Safety Inspection Standards. Remember, you must present an insurance identification card to the inspection station to show proof of insurance or the vehicle cannot be inspected.

When must a vehicle be registered in Vermont?

Residents must annually register motor vehicles owned or leased for a period of more than 30 days and operated by them, unless currently registered in Vermont. A Resident who has moved to Vermont from another jurisdiction must register their motor vehicles within 60 days of moving to Vermont. It is illegal for a person to operate a motor vehicle or draw a trailer or semi-trailer on any highway unless such vehicle is registered.
