VIN Verification

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 (DR 2698 from Colorado Department of Revenue), Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 3 PM at any of our branch offices for $20.00 per vehicle (weather permitting).

Certified VIN Verification

In some cases, a certified VIN inspection is required. View a list of Certified VIN inspection locations and note that most inspections are by appointment only. If you are not sure if your vehicle requires a certified VIN inspection, call us at (720) 865-4600.

If you are not a Denver County resident, visit the State of Colorado DMV website to locate your branch office.
