Don’t forget to also change your name on your vehicle’s title and registration while you’re at the DMV. Since you have to go in person in makes sense to get it all done at once.

Bring the same documents listed above along with the completed Form TA-VL-15 to update your registration. The fee will be $16.

For your vehicle title be prepared to “transfer” title to your new name by completing the title transfer form, but BEFORE YOU DO THIS, MAKE SURE TO ASK THE VERMONT DMV person. We have not been able to confirm this procedure. In other jurisdictions, they have you:

  • Complete the transfer form putting your new name in the “Seller” portion; and
  • Pay a fee.

Please confirm in the comments or raise any issues you have here and we’ll be certain to update it for future users! Thanks in advance.
