If I'm on active duty and my license expires, will Vermont offer a military extension?
You will be covered for up to four years as long as you remain on duty. While operating a vehicle during this time you will need to carry your current license, proof of service, and proof of active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces.
Even though I'm on active duty, I still received a license renewal notice. Do I need to respond to this?
Vermont's Department of Motor Vehicles automatically sends renewal notices to all licensed drivers. You can disregard this notice as long as you have secured a military extension.
How much time will I have to renew my license after I'm discharged from the military ?
You will have 30 days to renew.
How do I proceed with renewing my extended license after I'm discharged from active duty?
You will need to:
- Complete your license renewal form. If you don't have it, you then must instead download and fill out an Operator's License Application.
- Provide proof of owning a Vermont license.
- Provide either a copy of your discharge papers or a statement on official military stationery, signed by a commissioned officer, proving that you were on active duty.
- Pay either a four-year ($45) or a two-year ($28) license renewal fee.
Where do I send my license renewal information?
You can either deliver it in person or by mail to:
- Department of Motor Vehicles
- 120 State Street
- Montpelier, VT 05603-0001
