Military Veterans

Extension of license for members of U.S. Armed Forces (23 V.S.A. § 616)

If you are on active duty, and a Vermont resident, the military extension validates your existing Vermont Driver's License for up to 4 years from the date it would normally expire. While it is necessary for the Department to send notice of all expiring licenses, you may disregard such notice if you have obtained a military extension.
