Denver Motor Vehicle Will Reopen for In-Person Services June 29, 2020
All Denver Motor Vehicle locations will re-open for in-person transactions on Monday, June 29, 2020.
Customers will notice physical and process changes implemented to protect both customers and staff from potential COVID-19 exposure including:
Lobby areas must remain at a safe capacity. Once clients check-in at the facility, DMV staff will use a text messaging system to alert clients when it is their time to enter the building. Please bring a cell phone or mobile device to enable text notifications.
Additionally, dropboxes have been installed at all DMV branch locations. Clients with completed paperwork who are paying by check can place their information into the dropbox and staff will process and send the updated registration within 3-4 business days.
You may continue to use online, mail, and phone options for renewals, new registrations, disability placards, and other transactions. Visit mydmv.colorado.gov.
The City is providing a grace period for expired registrations through July 31, 2020. Denver Police Department and Denver Right of Way Enforcement will not issue citations for expired tags during this time.
Depending on your situation, you will need to supply the documentation listed below when you come to one of Denver's DMV branch offices. If you are not a Denver County resident, please visit the State of Colorado DMV website to locate your branch office.
Missing the douments you need?
If you lack the proper documents to validate your legal name change (birth certificate, marriage certificate, court decree), you can order documentation through vital records.
Court Order awarding vehicle
When a title is in joint ownership in the name of a married couple and there has been a divorce, the joint owner who was not awarded the vehicle must assign their interest in the vehicle to the other joint owner. Only the signature of the owner assigning their interest is required, providing the other joint owner's name is remaining the same and no additional owners are being added to the new title. The Court Order must describe the vehicle by year, make, VIN. A copy is acceptable.
Court Order divesting interest in a vehicle
When the divorce decree specifically states that one owner is awarded the vehicle, no signature is required from the person not awarded the vehicle. The divorce decree must describe the vehicle by year, make, VIN and accompany the application title. A copy of the divorce decree is acceptable.
Court Order authorizing clerk of the court in a divorce
When one of the owners is not available or refuses to sign the title, the court may authorize the Clerk of the Court to sign or give power of attorney to transfer the title. The Court Order must describe the vehicle by year, make, VIN. A copy of the court order is acceptable.
Direct Court Order in a divorce
The court may issue a direct order directing the State of Colorado to issue a title to one of the parties.
NOTE: Court Orders must describe vehicle by year, make and VIN, and must accompany application for title. A copy is acceptable.
