Required Documents for a Vermont Drivers License

When you apply for a VT driver license, you'll need to bring to the DMV office:

  • Proof of Vermont residency.
  • Proof of identity.
  • Proof of place and date of birth.
  • Your Social Security number.
NOTE: Proof of drivers ed is required only for driver license applicants younger than 18.

During the initial application process you'll also need to pass a vision exam and written license test. Though not mandatory, the DMV recommends making an appointment even for the written test by calling Central Scheduling at (802) 828-2085.

Before taking the test, be sure to prepare by studying Vermont's drivers manual. All test questions are based on driving topics addressed in the manual, including road sign identification, road emergencies, and drinking and driving repercussions. You can download the manual from the DMV website, or grab a hardcopy from any DMV location.

Next, you'll want to take an online practice test to gauge if you're test-ready.
