What documents do I need?

If you have not had to renew your Vermont driver’s license since Jan. 1, 2014, you will need to make that first renewal in person at a DMV office. This only needs to happen once and is a requirement of the federal REAL ID program, which also allows you to enter Canada and some other countries using your driver’s license instead of a passport. Here are the documents you may need:

  • The completed license renewal form that was mailed to your residence.
  • If you didn’t get one, fill out an application for license/permit form (VL-021).

Foreign guests and residents will need proof of lawful immigration status

  • Valid passport and current immigration documents
  • U.S. Department of Homeland Security documents

Citizens will need proof of their Social Security Number
