Registering a Vehicle in Vermont

According to Vermont laws, new owners of a motor vehicle have no right to operate that item on the state’s roads until they complete registration. If the owner doesn’t have some necessary documents and needs more time to complete the registration process, a temporary registration document is provided as evidence of the transfer of ownership title.

To complete registration or obtain temporary registration, you should attend the local division of VT DMV. There, you should provide the following documents for review:

  • Completed form TA-VT-005, which is an Odometer Disclosure Statement
  • A completed and signed car bill of sale with seller/buyer details, the VIN of your motor vehicle, and other relevant details
  • Your driver’s license and state ID for personal identification
  • A Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin (MCO) for brand-new vehicles and a title signed over to the new owner by the old one for used vehicles
  • Active auto insurance
  • Receipt for paid registration fees and taxes

Those unsure about the amount of tax or agency to which the tax for motor vehicle acquisition should be paid may consult the Vehicle Taxation policy of the Department of Motor Vehicles of Vermont Agency of Transportation. At present, the purchase and use tax for autos (including cars and trucks) is set at 6%. This category also covers motorcycles, trailers, and trucks weighing less than 10,099 lbs (for those exceeding this weight, the maximum tax rate is set at $2,075 regardless of their weight). This percentage is calculated from the net taxable cost of the motor vehicle you’re acquiring (which should also be stipulated in the bill of sale). Another alternative to determine the tax rate is the National Automobile Dealers Association’s (NADA) clean trade-in value of the item. The taxable sum is the greater of the two.

Buyers of motor vehicles in Vermont should also keep in mind that VIN verification may be necessary in case the title was previously registered in another U.S. state, or it is branded “salvage.”

It’s not mandatory to register the motor vehicle in person. New owners can mail all the documents to the local DMV, including the printed NADA estimation of the vehicle’s value, form VD-119 (registration, tax, and title application form of the state of Vermont), and a receipt of relevant tax and title fee payment.
