SOLICITUD DE LICENCIA / PERMISO

04 June 2019
Para solicitar la renovación de todas las licencias de Vermont o el expedir de las nuevas licencias. Spanish version application for a Vermont license or permit (Non-CDL).

Can a business refuse to accept my Vermont license for identification?

The primary purpose of a Driver’s license is to establish the holder of that license has the minimum skills required to safely operate a motor vehicle. Many entities have decided that this driving document can be accepted as proof of ID. The department does not have any authority to mandate that other entities accept our driving documents as proof of ID. 

Note that Vermont is Real ID compliant. The Vermont Driver Privilege Card is Not Real ID compliant.  See more on Real ID here
