Thanks!!
I'm not too sure myself, but we did a VIN Verification anyways with our bus since we only have the Bill of Sale to send in. Luckily it was an easy deal with the local sheriff's dept.

Talking

I have plates on my 2009 International!

On August 8th I sent:
  • Original PA title
  • Bill of Sale showing sales tax had been paid.
  • Form VD-119 (only one copy)
  • A check for $111 made out to the VT DMV

Certified mail tracking showed my stuff delivered on August 11.
My check was cashed on August 17th.
And on August 26th I received two plates in my mailbox.

I did not send a VIN verification, not required because I had a title and a bill of sale both showing the VIN.

I'm now plated and insured (National General), and very happy. Now just waiting for the title itself to come soon.

Form VD 119 is the Vermont Registration & Title Application
VD-119 Vehicle Registration Tax Title PDF
VD-119i Registration Tax Title Instructions PDF

Absolutely send the original, I have read where others have not sent the original title just to wait and call the VT DMV to find out that the original is required. I made copies of all my stuff before sealing the originals up in the envelope and sending it certified mail (gets a tracking number and such).

Well I figured that it would be about that time to call into the VT DMV and check the status of my application. I sent it via Fedex doc mailer. Showed it was confirmed delivered to the VT DMV on 08/12/22. I haven't seen our check cashed yet.

After being on hold for about 40mins, I was able to talk to a guy that tried searching through every bit of information I could provide to try and located our application. According to him, they either lost it, or never received it. Luckily I took photos, front and back, of the mailer along with a photo of my tracking receipt. He was kind of enough to give me his VT email so I could send this along to him.

So now, the wait is even longer. I may end up having to send everything in again, but time will tell. I'm just confused on how they could lose it when I even wrote in large font on the front of the mailer, "VEHICLE REGISTRATION DOCS".

I sent off my title today and my bus is 28 years old but I didn’t do anything in section 7, will I be okay? And also what are some problems people have with doing this if there is any?

Just want to update everyone that after a month and a half of waiting, we finally got our VT plates in the mail! We were initially worried when we called the VT DMV and were told that they couldn't locate any of our documents or check. Then this morning, I received a call that I should be receiving our plates within the week. Later this day they showed up in the mail!

We're officially a motorhome, and should be getting our transferable registration later next week!

To recap, we did send in a VIN verification form because the title that came with the bus was never signed by the guy who initially bought it from the school district. This made it an open title and thus the date of purchase on the title would not match up with our bill of sale. So we elected to send our paperwork in without the open title and just the VIN verification form to prove the bus wasn't stolen.

Check out Bartley's success post ... seems like it's only required when there is no title sent and when applying for a transferable registration.

I am happy to see so many people staying up to date and passing the info on. I just don't have the time anymore. Is there anyone willing to keep this guide current moving forward? Maybe we can get a moderator to unlock the original post...

Good morning all!

I am in the process of titling & tagging my bus, as is everyone else here! However, when I called them to verify tax information, they informed me that I would have to send in a picture for verification that it has in fact been decommissioned (seats are out, and markings on outside of the bus are gone), along with all the other paperwork. On my sales receipt, it says that I paid for the decommission, and I have a picture printed out, but I really was wondering if anyone else has had to submit this?

Thank you for all the replies in advance.

I had to send photos to prove to the insurance company that all passenger seats, the stop sign, the crossing arm, and the decals were removed.

Different states and agencies have different requirements. For instance Virginia let me register two buses without any hassle. But when I sold one to a gentleman in Connecticut he had to jump through tons of hoops to get plates, one of the biggest being he had to repaint the bus.

Ah yes, I should have put in here that I was using the Vermont Method to do this with. Kansas won't let me register it as a Motor home until it's 100% complete.

When I called Vermont, they said that I must have pictures for proof of decommission and that the seats weren't in there.

Warewolff did an amazing job with this post and with maintaining it, I did what he said down to the letter! I'm very visual so I did find this super helpful as well in terms of laying out the same information already posted in a video format.



https://youtu.be/W2vSaHQybnA


My paperwork all went out November 1st 2022 and I see the check has cleared November 14th 2022, mine is a 2002 Bluebird and I sent them the bill of sale along with a copy of the actual title.



I will update with the outcome when I know but wanted to post this now for a sense of timeline.

I would go read the VT DMV website and form. We were not required to submit any pictures showing anything. Our motorhome (it's no longer officially a bus) is a 1996 and we were able to provide complete chain of ownership documentation.

It's possible the law has changed post "covid". It's more likely you got a new employee that speaketh from an alternate orifice. Read the regulations and form instructions. Then call the DMV again with the regulations and forms open and if you're told the same thing about pics required ask where that requirement is documented in the regs and/or forms.
Let us know how it goes.
Also, if you fill out your profile info including your bus info it will be easier for people to answer any questions that come up..... and they will during this process.
