Amusement Rides

If you are an amusement ride operator who intends to operate a ride in the state of Vermont, you must register proof of insurance for the intended rides with the Office of the Secretary of State and the Department of Labor. Please allow 7-10 business days for the processing of any filings received by mail.


Secretary of State Requirements

Whether filing online or by mail, you will need to submit the documentation listed below with your registration form:

  1. A Ride List that clearly states the name, serial number, capacity, speed, and description of motion or travel where applicable.
  2. A certificate of insurance which includes:
    • Legal name and address.
    • A minimum of $1,000,000 in coverage.
    • An effective period that covers the intended event being attended.
    • A Schedule of Rides that matches the serial numbers of the Ride List exactly.
    • The Vermont Secretary of State, 128 State Street, Montpelier, Vermont 05633-1104 listed as a certificate holder.

Your Certificate of Operation must be registered and approved by the Secretary of State at least 15 days before the amusement ride is first operated in Vermont. (31 V.S.A. § 722(b))


An operator or owner who operates without a Certificate of Operation may be fined up to $500.00 per day for each day the violation continues. (31 V.S.A. § 724)
