RV & Motorhome Registration in VermontPage Overview
Vermont lumps motor homes into the same category as cars when it comes to registering. This means you are required to register your motor home on an annual basis with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
You must complete a Vermont Motor Vehicle Registration, Tax and Title Application (Form TA-VD-119). You can utilize the provided instruction form for help with your application. Submit your application, along with the required supporting documents listed on the instruction form, to your local DMV office.
The DMV will mail you your registration and license plates. The entire process takes about 2 weeks.
You should receive a renewal application by mail about 3 weeks before your registration is about to expire. You can sign it, include your renewal fee, and drop it off at a DMV office with the required fees.
To save time and effort, you can also renew online via Vermont's DMV Express service and pay by credit card.
If you do not receive a renewal application in the mail, you will instead have to complete a Vermont Motor Vehicle Registration, Tax and Title Application (Form TA-VD-119) and drop it off at the main DMV office in Montpelier (the satellite offices cannot process this) with the appropriate fees. The address is:
- Department of Motor Vehicles
- 120 State St.
- Montpelier, VT 05603
