Should you for whatever reason lose your license (or worse, have it stolen), you can apply for a duplicate by mail at the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles in Montpelier (see the address below) or in person at any branch location.
When applying for a replacement in person, be sure to bring one form each of primary and secondary identification, as well as cash, check, or a credit card to pay the $15 processing fee. You'll be asked to fill out an application for a duplicate license.
If you got your original license after January 5, 2004, then the DMV has a digital photo on file for you―and you can order a duplicate license by mail if you wish. To do so, you must submit two photocopied forms of identification, a check for $15, and an application for a duplicate license to:
- Department of Motor Vehicles
- 120 State St.
- Montpelier, VT 05603-0001
Vermont does not require that you notify the police that your license was lost or stolen, but it is advised to help prevent identify theft.
Lost License While Traveling Outside Vermont
Unlike other states, Vermont does not provide a fax number or e-mail address to expedite the processing of a lost license while traveling outside the state. Mail is your only option. So if you're in an I-need-it-now bind, consider using FedEx to submit a duplicate license application.
