    • Out-of-state vehicles must be inspected by the Sheriff's Office or town police.
    • Form DR2395 (PDF) is required to complete the inspection
    • There may be a charge for this service
  • Insurance
    • All vehicles under 16,000 pounds (empty weight) are required to show current proof of insurance prior to registration
  • If your vehicle has a lien on the title, the lien holder's name and address must be provided if not shown on the out-of-state title or registration
