DENVER – To protect the health and safety of our community and to help limit the spread of COVID-19, Denver’s motor vehicle branches will be closed to the public beginning Monday, March 16 and lasting until further notice.
To further support residents who may be impacted by the closures, the City and County of Denver will provide a grace period for expired vehicle registrations and for newly purchased vehicles that have not yet been registered through April 30, 2020. Residents are urged to use online motor vehicle services available at www.denvergov.org/dmv.
Denver’s motor vehicle locations are locally run and state-supervised. The decision to temporarily close the city’s DMV branches was made in response to guidance from the State of Colorado’s Department of Revenue, which has granted counties the authority to waive late fees for vehicle registration and renewals for 30 days while the Governor’s State of Emergency declaration is in effect.
Denver closed the Tremont DMV branch at 2855 Tremont Pl. on Thursday, March 12, 2020, at 2 p.m. as a precaution after an employee at the branch began exhibiting flu-like symptoms consistent with COVID-19. The employee did test positive for COVID-19. Anyone who visited the Tremont branch on March 11 or March 12, 2020, and interacted directly with DMV staff, are urged to pay close attention to whether they feel ill and contact their healthcare provider if they begin to display symptoms. The primary symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
