When to Register a Vehicle

All residents must register their vehicles within 60 days of purchase, and/or within 90 days of becoming a resident of Colorado.

If you have financed a vehicle through a lender/bank or dealership, please allow up to 60 days after purchase before coming in to register the vehicle. This time is required for the dealer and the County to process your title documents. We will send a courtesy Title Complete postcard when your vehicle can be registered. Please contact us at 303-795-4500 if you have not received the Title Complete Card within 55 days.

Motor Vehicle Offices will be closed August 1-3 for a statewide computer system upgrade.
