When someone passes away, a rightful heir can claim the deceased owner's vehicle. The process for transferring ownership varies. Please see situations below for more information. Within 60 days upon the transfer of a motor vehicle, the new owner must either register the vehicle or present the certificate of title with an application for title to the Denver County DMV (Denver residents only).
