Call From Vermont DMV About Boom Vader (My Grom Clone). Oh-No!

It’s no secret I am registering my new Boom Vader (A Grom Clone) through the mail with the Vermont DMV. This form of motorcycle registration is NOT a Vermont Motorcycle Registration Loophole; I am legally registering my newest Boom Vader motorcycle as expected.  

Well, I looked at my home phone and saw it was flashing. I had a voice message, and I listened to it and heard it was a call from the Vermont Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV), asking me to return their call.

Today I returned the call, and the reason they called was about my Boom Vader motorcycle registration. My luck.

Returning The Vermont DMV Phone Call.

I called and spoke to an Angel, and she informed me I incorrectly filled out the check.  

In my defense, who writes checks in the 21st century?

When I register my motorcycle with Vermont, I send all the paperwork(forms, MCO, proof of sale, etc.) via mail. I included a check for the tax and registration fee in the paperwork. I was afraid I miscalculated the total price, but I messed up the date instead. Duh!

FAQ: Where Is The VIN On A Motorcycle?

Angel was so kind; she explained I could resend a check or pay by credit card. Ch-Ching! Credit card it was.  

I paid my total price via credit card and was told the motorcycle plate and temp registration would be in the mail ASAP, and the final registration with plate sticker would be arriving soon afterward.

It was a pleasant experience, and Angel didn’t make fun of me for not remembering how to handwrite checks in this day and age of online billing.

My Overall Vermont Motorcycle Registration Experience?

Now I just wanted to get this post out on the blog asap, and still waiting for the plate to show up, but…

Everyone talks about the Vermont Motorcycle Registration Loophole as if a real legal loophole exists. There is no loophole. Still, the real benefit to Vermont’s out-of-state registration process is how clean it is.  

No long lines. No sitting around waiting at the local DMV waiting for my number to be called. No frustration and I feel my DMV is understaffed at times.

Even with submitting the paperwork by mail, this process is pretty quick. Not as quick as getting temp plates from my local DMV, but still quick.

Thumbs up to Vermont for being out-of-state motorcycle friendly.

Soon I will be legally riding my motorcycle on the streets. Running the Boom Vader stock for the break-in period, then afterward looking at upgrades. Thanks for stopping by.

Ride Safe, Ride Legal, Ride Fun!!!

Hi I’m Tom, A New Motorcycle Rider and Blog Author.

I am a new rider(Pa Learners Permit at the end of 2020, and I received a Pa Motorcycle License in 2021 after passing a Motorcycle Safety Course).

I bought my first motorcycle, a TaoTao TBR7, at the beginning of 2021 and have been doing upgrades on that motorcycle since.

I added to my motorcycle collection by buying a Boom Vader Gen 2 in 2022, and that Grom-Clone motorcycle has been upgraded by me as well.

I continue to ride my Boom Vader Gen 2 motorcycle as well as my TaoTao TBR7 dual-sport bike.
