Denver Motor Vehicle Branches Closed
To protect the health and safety of our community and limit the spread of COVID-19, Denver’s motor vehicle branches are closed to the public until further notice. We are only processing online registrations at this time.
You can renew online, but if your registration requires an in-person visit, the city is providing a grace period for expired registrations through June 26. Denver Police Department will not issue citations for expired tags during this time. For extra peace of mind, you can obtain a letter from the state to keep in your vehicle at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/dmv/DMVCOVID-19.
Many transactions can be completed online including:
New tags will be mailed in approximately 2-3 weeks and you will receive a letter to keep with you in your vehicle until they arrive.
The Denver County Motor Vehicle Department will assist Denver County residents with the replacement of lost, stolen or damaged plates and/or placards. If you are not a Denver County resident, please visit the State of Colorado DMV website to locate your branch office.
All vehicles are required by Colorado State law to have both a front and back plate.
Depending on the type of vehicle, there will be a nominal fee for any plate replacement.
|Regular Colorado Plates (two plates) cars, trucks, etc.||$8.06|
|Regular Colorado Plate (single plate) trailers, heavy eqt.||$6.17|
