Sold Your Vehicle? Remove Your Plates!
When you sell a vehicle, we strongly urge you to remove your plates at the time of the sale even if the vehicle is sold to a dealer. Why? For several reasons:
- You are responsible for the use of the license plates in your name.
- Plates are assigned to you as owner; not the vehicle.
- If a parking ticket is issued to the new owner of the vehicle, as owner of the license plates you left on the vehicle, you are responsible for those tickets.
- You are responsible for any misuse of the plates.
- There is no automatic cancellation or transfer of the plates.
- You may be eligible for a credit.
Insurance Is Mandatory In Colorado!
The following will be accepted by Denver County as proof of insurance:
- Insurance Card
- Copy of Insurance Policy
- Letter from the Insurance Company, on their letterhead.
All provided proof must include a description of the vehicle including year, make, model, vehicle identification number (VIN), effective date and expiration date of the policy.
The State of Colorado allows for a one month grace period for renewing registrations. The grace period ends the last day of the month following the month of expiration. (Example: If your registration expires in April, your grace period ends the last business day in May)
