Governor Phil Scott and the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) today announced the reopening of the Montpelier, South Burlington, and Rutland offices to the public by appointment only using a new online scheduling system.

Customers can schedule appointments online beginning Thursday, August 27. The first appointment times available will be for Monday, August 31. The hours of operation for appointments at all three locations for appointments will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Customers with appointments are asked to arrive ten minutes before their appointment so DMV staff can review and verify all required paperwork prior to the appointment.

Many services are available online or by mail, and the DMV urges customers to take advantage of the efficiency and ease of utilizing those options. Online services include license renewals, replacement licenses, registration renewals, replacement registrations, address changes, learner permit exams, paying reinstatement fees, and many commercial vehicle transactions. Please go to for these and other online services, and for information about which transactions can be completed by mail.

Until further notice, DMV will continue to extend license and registration renewals for 90 days beyond their effective expiration date; to include temporary plates.  *Please share this information with your customers, as there may be a delay in processing transactions.

All temporary plates, in-transit plates, decals, Title Reassignment Forms (Green Sheets) can still be ordered through the mail, fax, or electronic methods.

If you have any questions, please contact your area DMV Investigator directly. To find the investigator assigned to your area, please visit the DMV Inspector map or contact the DMV Investigations Unit.
