As of July 1, 2023, Vermont has new requirements for vehicle registrations using an out-of-state address or a power of attorney.
Under the new rules, the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles now evaluates all out-of-state transactions based on your home state's laws, regulations, and policies. The department will not process registration transactions until the vehicle's owner establishes a legitimate connection to the State of Vermont.
Power of Attorney
Under the new rules, anyone registering a vehicle in Vermont using a power of attorney (POA) must use the official DMV POA form # VN-101.
What You Need to Know
If you plan to register a vehicle in Vermont with an out-of-state address or a power of attorney, you must know the new requirements. You can find more information at “Registering a Vehicle Without a Vermont Address.”
Here are some additional things to keep in mind:
- The new requirements apply to all vehicle registrations using an out-of-state address or a power of attorney.
- Your vehicle registration may be denied if you do not meet the new requirements.
- You can still register a vehicle in Vermont using an out-of-state address or a power of attorney, but you must provide the additional documentation required by the new rules.
