I think it was roughly 6-8 weeks if I remember correctly. It was well within the time of the temp registration for me. Although others had it cut closer but I haven't heard of anyone going past the deadline in VT.Hey All! Took delivery of my R1T a couple weeks ago!
How long did you have to wait until your Vermont registration came through?
You can't get it inspected w/ the temp Illinois tag, but once you get the VT plates w/ the validated registration application back you can use that to get it inspected. You don't have to wait for the registration sticker and registration card.Oh yup, that completely got lost in all the excitement. Ha can't been thinking about inspections.
They need to see full registration though right, I can't get it done with temp tags?
Thanks for the heads up!
It might be worth checking in w/ your guide to make sure there isn't some other hold-up.Still waiting for Vermont registration to come through...I have a couple weeks left on the temp tags. Getting a little nervous.
Good luck!My guide has been largely absent from the beginning, and is now on PTO.
I bugged the generic CS rep in chat, and eventually got another guide to look into it for me. They emailed yesterday saying the ETA was 2/16. Then, I simultaneously got a letter from the state yesterday saying:
"...to inform you that we are delaying issuance of your Registration / Title. It is necessary to obtain further information from the dealer from whom you acquired the vehicle before we can process your application."
I'd hoped this only would've happened to the first Rivian registered in the state, but it seems to be an ongoing issue now. Going to give DMV a call and push back on Rivian.
Finally got my plates & registration yesterday. My temporary plates had expired, and Rivian arranged a rental car for me to use until documentation arrived which was a helpful move, considering I didn't want to drive on expired tags.
Got my inspection done by Vermont Tire & Service on Route 2 in Montpelier. Advice from a fellow VT owner led me to them they've seen several R1Ts already and have the puck system in hand if they need to get it on a lift. Would recommend using them in the future.
My understanding is that if you don't have the pucks then you need to remove one of the underbody panels in order to put it on the lift. The pucks make it so you don't have to remove that underbody panel as they fit into holes in said panel.it's been is my understanding that if they have a lift they shouldn't need the pucks. The pucks are more for jacks i thought
