You have a vehicle that is
2008 or older
which was never titled in your name.

Vermont Registration

Solution: If you have purchased or acquired a vehicle and the prior title is not available, or the prior owner is not available, one option is to use an out of state title process to obtain your title.  If the vehicle is more than 15 years old (2008 or older), the State of Vermont may accept a basic bill of sale to transfer ownership to your name. The other 49 states do not allow for bill of sale to transfer.

Be advised, Vermont no longer allows NON RESIDENTS TO TITLE A VEHICLE IN THE STATE OF VERMONT.  Click below to schedule a consultation to discuss alternative options.

As an alternative, you can consider Bonded Title or Court Ordered title. Click one of the red buttons below to order.

Neither of those requires this type of approval. We recommend choosing one of these two methods. There is a chance that Vermont will not approve your out of state application without approval from your state, and there is a chance that your state will not accept a Vermont registration for transfer.

Vermont previously issued a registration form of ownership for 15 year old vehicles. Since that was their version of a title, you could have obtained this document in your name by paying the registration fee with just a bill of sale, and then present it to your state DMV to request a legal title in your name, in your state. Since Vermont is now requiring all applicants to obtain a title and be a resident of the state.   This method no longer works.

The Vermont DMV Is Secretly America’s DMV

Most state DMV agents know to recognize the Vermont registration as a valid ownership document, since they are a non-titling jurisdiction. There are instances where a particular office or window agent may not be aware of the interpretation. Be advised that using any title recovery process is at the sole risk of the client. You may wish to select an alternate title method if you do not have certain confirmation that your DMV office would easily accept the VT reg,
