I always have best of luck with going early on a Sat. Morning, stand in line outside and wait for them to be open, be first person to be served and the clerk is still half asleep and hung over, they just push your stuff thru no questions asked. Look to the side when they are looking over your paperwork. Bring every doc conceivable and keep it in a folder, just give them only what they ask for and say as little as possible. If no go, You can always ask VT if they will issue a title due to NJ wanting one.
