Vermont DMV launches online license renewals, extends inspection due date

MONTPELIER — The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) recently announced the official launch of a new online system for license renewals.

The online renewal form can be found at with online support available through the DMV website.

The DMV strongly encourages Vermonters to renew online using the simple form.

Renewal notices will continue to be mailed to all license holders and will include the URL for the online service and a unique PIN needed for the online form.

This new service comes at a critical time for Vermonters and dovetails with the Governor’s March 18 directive for the DMV to transition to online, mail and phone transactions to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The governor also has extended car inspections for another 50 days so that people will not have to worry about leaving their homes in order to get their vehicle inspected.

“This is a key step forward in the modernization of DMV services for Vermonters,” said DMV Commissioner Wanda Minoli. “The option to renew online will ease the process for many customers and will result in greater efficiency and cost savings for the state.”

The DMV switched to a new license and identification card system in the summer of 2019.

The new credentials have advanced security features to help prevent fraud and identity theft and are printed off-site at a highly secure facility.

Online license renewals will be processed by the DMV and the data will be transmitted to the printing facility.

Vermonters will receive the new license or ID in the mail 7-10 business days after the DMV submits the renewal for printing.
