How to get a motorcycle title
We’ve already covered this topic in a previous post for small cc enduros: Get a title with a Vermont Registration. However, for larger cc motorcycles that fit the below requirements there is an additional form that you have to submit:
1. Titleable motorcycles 300 cc’s or more last registered in another state are required to have a VIN verification from the Vermont personnel listed above.
2. All used motorcycles 500 cc’s or more being registered/titled in Vermont for the first time, regardless of model year are required to have a VIN verification from the Vermont personnel listed above.
Here are the steps to getting a Vermont plate and registration for a motorcycle. I’m sharing this info with the hope that it’ll help keep another old motorcycle on the road.
Here’s how I registered my KZ750:
1. Bill of Sale
2. Vermont Registration Form VD119
3. VIN Verification
1. Make a Bill of Sale to show proof a sale. This can be between any parties and does not need to be notarized.
2. Fill out VT Form VD119. I originally submitted my form without the VIN Verification and it was mailed back to me with the red markups.
- Motorcycle fee is $48
- Tax is 6% of the NADA good value.
- Write check for total amount payable to: Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles
5. Mail everything to:
- Vermont DMV
- 120 State ST
- Montpelier VT 05603
Turn around is 2-3 weeks and what you get back are VT plates and registration. You can then use that registration paperwork to apply for a PA title and registration.
If this has helped you out we could use your help to keep the COTT website going. Thanks in advance!

So… While in Milwaukee, we stopped and did the Harley museum tour. It was pretty epic. Normally I can’t really get interested in Harley’s. Anyway… The Harley museum was sick and I loved a lot of the stock looking ones from the 50-80’s. The sportster xr 750 and 1000 stand out to me. They’re badass. […]
