(Cite as: 23 V.S.A. § 208)
  • § 208. Reciprocal recognition of nonresident registrations, licenses, and permits; foreign visitors

    As determined by the Commissioner, and consistent with section 601 of this title, a motor vehicle owned by a nonresident shall be considered as registered and a nonresident operator shall be considered as licensed or permitted in this State if the nonresident owner or operator has complied with the laws of the foreign country or state of his or her residence relative to the registration of motor vehicles and the granting of operator’s licenses or learner’s permits. However, these exemptions shall be operative only to the extent that under the laws of the foreign country or state of the owner’s or operator’s residence like exemptions and privileges are granted to owners of motor vehicles duly registered and to operators duly licensed or permitted under the laws of this State, except that if the owner or operator is a resident of a country not adjoining the United States, the exemptions shall be operative for a period of not more than one year even if the country does not grant like privileges to residents of this State. (Added 2015, No. 158 (Adj. Sess.), § 61; amended 2019, No. 60, § 7.)
