Title 23 : Motor Vehicles

Chapter 036 : Titling of Vessels, Snowmobiles, and All-Terrain Vehicles

(Cite as: 23 V.S.A. § 3836)
  • § 3836. Records; inspection

    (a) Each person who purchases or in any manner acquires a vessel, snowmobile, or all-terrain vehicle as salvage shall keep and maintain for a period of not less than five years such records as may be prescribed by the Commissioner that are reasonably necessary to substantiate the information contained in the application required by sections 3833 and 3835 of this title. These records shall include parts and accessories obtained and used for the repair or rebuilding, or both, of a vessel, snowmobile, or all-terrain vehicle, and such financial records that will allow the Commissioner to determine if the person qualifies to become or remain licensed as a “salvage dealer.”

    (b) The Commissioner, or his or her agents, may inspect and examine the books, records, premises, and vehicles on the premises of any salvage dealer during the usual business hours of the day to verify the truth and accuracy of any information furnished in connection with the provisions of this section and section 3833 of this chapter.

    (c) Any salvage dealer who in any manner receives a vessel, snowmobile, or all-terrain vehicle that does not have a plate attached to the vessel, snowmobile, or all-terrain vehicle bearing the vehicle identification number shall notify the Commissioner in writing that such a vessel, snowmobile, or all terrain vehicle has been received within seven days. (Added 2009, No. 39, § 10; amended 2021, No. 76, § 32.)
