VIN Verifications

VIN Verification Requirements

A VIN verification is required before registering a vehicle in the City and County of Denver when the vehicle:

  • has an out-of-state title,
  • was purchased outside of Colorado,
  • was transferred on a Purged Bill of Sale, or
  • requires a correction to the description on the title.

Denver Motor Vehicle performs VIN verifications and completes a Verification Vehicle Identification Number Form (PDF) (DR 2698 from Colorado Department of Revenue) during normal business hours at any branch office for $20.00 per vehicle (weather permitting).

Certified VIN Verification

Information about obtaining a Certified VIN verification can be found at the State of Colorado's VIN Inspection web site.
