Same-Day Transactions for In-Person Appointments

Most vehicle registration and title transactions are now completed on the same day during in-person appointments. In most cases, customers will leave the DMV with their license plate, registration, and/or title.

Registration Cards and Stickers Discontinued

The DMV no longer issues registration cards and stickers. Instead, your vehicle registration document will be a standard 8.5 x 11 inch paper, and Vermont law now allows you to carry and display proof of registration electronically on a portable device such as a phone. See news article for vehicles, motorboats, and snowmobiles for more detail.


All vehicles must be titled effective January 1st, 2024. For more information, see our page on Tax & Title.
