23 V.S.A. § 801. Proof of financial responsibility required



§ 1415. Transfer of weight permits

(a) Weight permits issued pursuant to this subchapter may be transferred from one vehicle to another vehicle. If the permit fee of the motor vehicle for which a permit is sought is less than the permit fee for the transferred motor vehicle, the commissioner shall certify to the commissioner of finance and management the facts pertinent to the difference of the permit fees, giving the name of the owner of the motor vehicle, his or her address, the amount of the original permit fee paid, the date of application for transfer, and the correct fee for the motor vehicle for which the permit is sought. The commissioner of finance and management shall issue his or her warrant in favor of the owner for the percent of the difference in permit fees as the unexpired term bears to the entire permit period. If the permit fee for the motor vehicle for which a permit is sought is greater than the permit issued to the transferred vehicle, the permit applicant shall pay the difference based on the prorated term remaining on the permit. If a transfer of the permit is made before the 15th day of any month, the transfer shall be considered as having been made on the first day of the month. If the transfer of a permit is made on or after the 15th day of any month, the transfer shall be considered as having been made on the first day of the month following the application for transfer.

(b) Transfers issued pursuant to subsection (a) of this section shall only be permitted if the applicant or an authorized representative appears at the department of motor vehicles' office in Montpelier. Such transfers shall be permitted by mail, if the transfer is between vehicles registered at the same weight. (Added 1987, No. 187 (Adj. Sess.), § 3.)
