DMV: Minors Registering a Vehicle

Minors Registering a Vehicle

SERVICE ADVISORY:  DMV will close for the Labor Day holiday as usual on Friday, Sept. 4, at 12:30 p.m. and will not have its half-day office hours the next day, Saturday. This follows contractual agreements related to state and federal holidays that occur on Mondays as Labor Day does. Offices will reopen Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 7:45 a.m. 

Connecticut law allows minors to register vehicles if they are at least 16 years of age.

What to do:

  • Complete Certificate of Parental Consent (form 2D)
  • The form must be Notarized and signed by a parent or legal guardian for all applicants that are 16 or 17 years old.

Note: When an owner under the age of 18 is registering a non-passenger motor vehicle (i.e.: motorcycle, trailer, some pickup trucks, etc.) in the State of Connecticut, special insurance called Proof of Financial Responsibility must be obtained from your insurance company, in accordance with Connecticut State Law Title 14 Sec. 14-14. This insurance must be on file at the Department of Motor Vehicles before the vehicle can be registered. Please call 860-263-5152 to verify the filing before proceeding to the DMV.
