Vermont DMV issues Driver’s Licenses, Learner Permits and IDs from a central location and mails them to customers

Why is renewing early so important?

A temporary document may not be accepted for identification purposes. Activities such as boarding airplanes and completing financial transactions will be easier with your permanent card in your possession.

Central Issuance of Driver Licenses and ID Cards

To help prevent identity theft and fraud, Vermont DMV issues Driver’s Licenses, Learner Permits and IDs from a central location and mails them to customers. 

Drivers receive a 30-day Temporary License/ID, and their permanent License, Permit or ID card arrives before the temporary certificate expires.

The certificate may be used only for driving purposes. It cannot be used for identification. Drivers may renew their License or ID as early as six months before their card expires.
