Denver Motor Vehicle New Branch Hours Effective Aug. 3

All Denver Motor Vehicle locations will implement new hours beginning August 3, 2020:
Open 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. M, Tu, Th, F
Open 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Wed.

The change is necessary to accommodate rising summer temperatures during the summer months. All Motor Vehicle branches are experiencing long wait times and encourage customers to use alternate methods for completing transactions when possible.

Customers will notice physical and process changes implemented to protect both customers and staff from potential COVID-19 exposure including:

  • Glass dividers at all customer-facing windows
  • Physical distancing cues to help customers observe social distancing
  • Increased cleaning frequency for high traffic areas
  • Hand sanitizer for staff and clients, face masks for all staff and for clients who forget their mask, and other protective measures

Lobby areas must remain at a safe capacity. Clients will first check-in at the facility and DMV staff will notify you when it is safe to enter the building. 

Clients with completed paperwork who are paying by check can place their information directly into the drop box at any of the five branch offices without waiting and staff will process and send the updated registration within 3-4 business days. 

Residents may also 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 August 31, 2020. Denver Police Department and Denver Right of Way Enforcement will not issue citations for expired tags during this time.

*If you live in Denver and renew your expired registration online after July 1, you may be charged a late fee. Request a refund of late fees by completing this form. Denver is waiving late fees through August 31, 2020.

If your title has been lost, stolen, damaged, or has altered legibility, you can obtain a duplicate title at one of Denver's DMV branch offices (Denver residents only). If you are not a Denver County resident, please visit the State of Colorado DMV website to locate your branch office.

How to Obtain a Duplicate Title

  1. Denver residents must provide owner identification (secure and verifiable) or designated power of attorney completed and notarized Form DR2175
  2. Bring a completed Duplicate Title Request Form DR 2539A.
  3. Be prepared to pay the title fee.


Duplicate Titles for Lienholders

  1. If you are a lienholder and want to submit a duplicate title request for a title with an active lien, a lien release must be submitted. The lien release must be on the lienholder's letterhead (letterhead is not required if lienholder is an individual). Photo and fax copies are accepted and must include vehicle year, make, VIN, titled owner's name(s), agent's signature, date of lien release and must be signed under penalty of perjury in the second degree as defined by Colorado state law (C.R.S. 18-8-503).

  2. If you are applying as lienholder and the lien is not filed in Colorado, you must include a power of attorney completed and notarized Form DR2175 from the owner or, in the case of repossession, include a Statement of Repossession and a certified copy of the security agreement.
