MONTPELIER – Governor Phil Scott announced Tuesday that the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles offices in Montpelier, South Burlington, and Rutland will be reopening to the public by appointment only and using a new online scheduling system.
Customers can schedule appointments online beginning Thursday, August 27. The first appointment times available are Monday, August 31.
The hours of operation at all three locations for appointments will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Customers with appointments are asked to arrive 10 minutes before their appointment so DMV staff can review and verify all required paperwork prior to the appointment.
“Throughout the COVID-19 State of Emergency and temporary closure of our offices, we have been fully aware of the services that Vermonters need and we have been pursuing solutions to better serve them,” DMV Commissioner Wanda Minoli said.
“While DMV employees have continued to work daily covering mail, on-line, and email requests, our goal always has been to re-open as quickly as possible with health and safety protocols in place.”
Many services are available online or by mail. The DMV is urging customers to take advantage of the those options. Online services include license renewals, replacement licenses, registration renewals, replacement registrations, address changes, learner permit exams, paying reinstatement fees, and many commercial vehicle transactions. Please go to https://dmv.vermont.gov/mydmv for these and other online services, and for information about which transactions can be completed by mail.
The DMV is also working on an online solution to offer Vermonters a more efficient way to get a temporary vehicle registration and temporary plate for private sales. Details of this new online service will be announced soon.
With the new scheduling system now live, the DMV will look to expand in-person appointments at the remaining branch offices
