Licensing Fees

As of November 1, 2017 the fee submitted with an application will be considered an application fee rather than a license or permit fee.  As such, fees are non-refundable regardless of a license or permit being issued.  If you have questions or concerns about the feasibilty of acquiring a license or permit, you are encouraged to call the Vermont DLC and speak with the Licensing Department before submitting your application.  (NOTE: personal checks are not accepted.)
