Motor Vehicle Titles
Our Motor Vehicle Division assists Arapahoe County residents with titling vehicles at four office locations.  See our Wait Times to plan your visit.

Vehicle Titles
All vehicles must be titled to show proof of ownership. A certificate of title is a legal form establishing a person or business as the owner of the vehicle. Whenever a car is sold, the title must be transferred to the new owner. You must title vehicles at a motor vehicle office in the county where you reside.
