DoNotPay Offers Help When Renewing Your Vermont Car Registration

Every Vermont car owner should have a valid car registration. After three years, you must renew it annually. The renewal process is sometimes tiresome and time-consuming. Fortunately, DoNotPay can make your Vermont registration renewal process fast and convenient.

Traditionally, you are required to visit a local DMV office for car registration renewal, where you may have to wait in long queues or have problems filling in long forms. However, using DoNotPay enables you to complete the process conveniently and fast. Learn the traditional methods of renewing your car registration in Vermont and a more convenient method of using DoNotPay.

How Do You Renew Your Car Registration in Vermont?

The state of Vermont requires you to have a valid car registration file at all times. They will send a notice a month before your current expiry date, which you will require when renewing your registration. You will need to carry the notice when renewing in person.

Renew Your Vermont Car Registration in Person

You may renew your vehicle registration at DMV offices or participating town clerks across Vermont. There are restrictions when using town clerks for the service as follows:

  • They cannot process renewals for trucks that weigh 54,999 lbs. or more.
  • Do not handle IRP (Apportioned) registrations.
  • They also charge a processing fee on top of the cost of renewing your automobile registration. The processing fee is paid in cash, but the renewal fees must be paid using other methods (checks and money orders).

Renewals in person take up to six days for the new registration to be emailed to you.

Renew by Mail

You can renew the registration by mail using the envelope included in the renewal notice. The DMV requires the renewal notice or a title application (VD-119) included in the mail. This method uses a money order or checks for payment. You should mail the renewal request to DMV, PO Box 1308, Williston, Vermont 05495-1308.

After mailing these items, you will have to wait up to ten days to process the renewal request.
