Titling a Vehicle

Douglas County Motor Vehicle offices can only title and register vehicles of residents of Douglas County. If you do not live in Douglas County please contact the Motor Vehicle office for the County that you reside in.

When purchased from a dealer, Colorado dealers will forward paperwork directly to the Douglas County Motor Vehicle Office. The dealer should also provide you with a temporary tag.

Once your paperwork has been processed you may register your vehicle.

If you did not finance the vehicle or you purchased from an individual, you are responsible for bringing the following documentation to the Douglas County Motor Vehicle Office:

  • Title property assigned
  • Bill of sale indicating purchase price (if not disclosed on the title)
  • Odometer disclosure statement if vehicle is less than ten years old
  • Weight slip, if applicable
  • A notarized Power of Attorney (POA) is required if titling a vehicle for another individual

If the vehicle was purchased from an out of state dealer, you will need a VIN verification. A VIN verification is available for $8.00 from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office at 303-660-7500. VIN Verifications may also be available from a licensed Colorado motor vehicle dealer or a Colorado emissions testing station. Contact your local emissions testing station to check the availability of this service or visit www.aircarecolorado.com for more information.
