Well, for those of you who have been following our channel for many years, this will come as no surprise, but there’s some important developments for the Vermont loophole—the thing that’s been most interesting to people around the country for over a decade.
The Vermont DMV’s ResponseThe Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has issued a bulletin called the “Vermont Register Out-of-State Registration Certification.” This form, issued in June of 2023, signifies a significant shift in policy regarding out-of-state transactions.
Interstate Collaboration and EnforcementIn concert with other state jurisdictions, the Vermont DMV has begun to evaluate all out-of-state transactions based on the laws, regulations, and policies of the vehicle owner’s home state.
Tightening the requirementsTo process these transactions, the department now requires a legitimate connection to Vermont, as evidenced by a completed form declaring ownership and compliance with home state regulations.
Review Process and EnforcementUpon submission, the Vermont DMV’s law enforcement division reviews each request, potentially requesting further documentation from the owner or their home state.
Exploring AlternativesAs always, we recommend exploring alternative methods such as bonded titles or court orders, which may be more cost-effective and efficient than pursuing the Vermont loophole.
