NEWPORT — The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles announced today that three more branch offices, in Bennington, Newport, and Springfield, are re-opening to the public by appointment only using the new online scheduling system.
DMV Commissioner Wanda Minoli says the late August re-opening to the public in Montpelier, South Burlington, and Rutland offices went very well.
“The online scheduling system has been a huge success,” Minoli said. “Customers love the convenience and efficiency of having a scheduled appointment time and no wait.”
Customers can schedule appointments in Bennington, Newport, and Springfield online starting today.
The first appointment times available will be for Monday, October 5.
The hours of operation for appointments at all three locations will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Customers with appointments are asked to arrive ten minutes before their appointment so DMV staff can review and verify all required paperwork prior to the appointment.
Bennington, Newport, and Springfield branch offices will be offering regular office transactions, operator exams, and CDL permit exams and will not be conducting motorcycle skills or CDL skill exams at this time.
Temporary registration for private-party vehicle purchases can still be processed online and a temporary plate can be printed by customers.
Other online services include license renewals, replacement licenses, registration renewals, replacement registrations, address changes, learner permit exams, paying reinstatement fees, and many commercial vehicle transactions.
Go to mydmv.vermont.gov for these and other online services, and for information about which transactions can be completed by mail.
