Call them and see, that's what I ended up having to do.

BTW my bus is a 40 footer with air brakes. GVW is 29k pounds. I do have a CDL B with no restrictions though.
I have not done anything for insurance yet. It's sitting happily in my driveway as I undergo renovations. As for inspections, I ignore it. Always have. NY is not going to bust my chops for not having a VT inspection. If you plan to travel in VT, might as well get it inspected. I have never received a ticket for lack of an out of state inspection and I've been doing this for years. As for the flatbed aspect, I don't know. I'm not an expert on these things. I know that insuring an RV is cheap because they assume you're only using it for vacationing. I don't believe the same would apply to a flatbed.

Call the Montpelier location. They will give you an accurate update. If you missed something, specifically the ORIGINAL title for vehicles under 15 years, as Alleycat found out, they will not cash it and will not correspond with you. If your bus is over 15 years and you did not fill out the part about state tax (or did not submit proof that state tax has already been paid), they will not cash your check and will not correspond with you. See the pattern here? I always call at the 2 week mark and then every week after that to ensure everything is working out so that I can immediately rectify whatever I missed. The only downside to this is getting through to a human in the Vermont DMV -- the wait times are sometimes pretty long, and that's if you can get through to begin with. If you get a busy tone, hang up and try again in 15 minutes.

any help will be GREATLY appreciated...I'm not the brightest on this subject
You do not need proof of insurance. As for visual verification of the VIN, this is generally if you do not have a copy of your title to begin with. You will need a Sheriff to verify that the VIN isn't stolen. If you have the proper paperwork to begin with, don't sweat it. No visual verification necessary. Again, if your vehicle is under 15 years old, send the ORIGINAL title via certified mail so that you know it was delivered. If your vehicle is over 15 years in age, send a copy of the title. If your bus is under 15 years you'll receive a title. If your bus is over 15 years you'll receive a transferable registration, which is treated like a title. If you ever try to re-register into another state with your transferable registration from VT, you will be issued another transferable registration. They are treated the same way as a title for all intents and purposes.

Alleycat, please post when you get your tags. We've had some successes already but I'd like to see this down to a science with expected wait times and all that. Hope it works out for all of you. Additionally for anyone doing this in the future we highly recommend you send a PERSONAL check, so that if it gets lost in the mail or in the process you can just send another one.

Alleycat...
did you send yours back in yet? I'm really curious to know if you did and how you're making out with it. I'm sending mine tomorrow. I'm at the cutoff point as in by January 1st it will be 15 yrs old. So anyway, I'll send it
certified so I can keep my eye on it.

I actually haven't done that yet, mine is a 2005 so I don't have to worry about the 15 year cutoff just yet, but I do need to do it soon, would like to have my tag by the end of the year.

I'm stumped...do I need to fill out the (visual) VIN verification form?
Ooops nevermind....I found my answer in an earlier post.
