Registering used vehicle received as gift

You need to submit the following documents obtained from the person who is giving you the vehicle (the previous owner):

  1. Properly assigned title* (Vermont-issued), or VIN Verification (form #VT-010) (out of state issued)
  2. Bill of Sale & Odometer Disclosure Statement (form #VT-005)
  3. Gift Tax Exemption (form #VT-013)

* Proper assignment requires all the owners listed on the title to sign as sellers in the assignment of ownership section on the back of the title and the new owner’s name must be entered on the “transferred to” line. Any liens listed on the title must be released.

Complete a Vermont Registration, Tax, and Title Application (form #VD-119) and submit it (together with the above documentation and the appropriate fees) to the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles. Specific information about fees and supporting documents can be found in the Vermont Registration, Tax, and Title Application Instructions (form #VD-119i).
