Motor Vehicle FAQ

When will I receive the license plates or registration renewal sticker that I ordered?

License plate orders are typically fulfilled within 21 days after the payment has been submitted. To check on the status of a license plate order please contact our office: 303-660-7440

A registration renewal/license plate sticker will be provided at the time of service if renewing by kiosk or in person. It may take up to 6 weeks to receive your registration renewal/license plate sticker for online and mail transactions. Please plan accordingly.

I just bought a vehicle, what do I need to do now?

Please visit our Buying or Selling a Vehicle webpage for detailed information on titling and registering your vehicle

How can I get a duplicate vehicle registration card or a duplicate title?

Can I estimate my vehicle registration fees?

Click here for the online fee estimator. The estimator is designed to calculate the amount due for new, first-time vehicle registrations. It is not meant for vehicle registration renewals.

Can I complete a motor vehicle transaction for someone else?

A non-owner of a vehicle may complete a transaction on behalf of the vehicle owner and may receive the inventory and documentation for the transaction if they have Power of Attorney (POA) or a Letter of Authorization (LOA) from a business. Without Power of Attorney (POA) or a Letter of Authorization (LOA) from a business, the inventory and documentation for the transaction will be sent to the vehicle owner’s mailing address on file.

Why is there a Keep Colorado Wild Pass listed in my vehicle registration renewal fees?

Colorado residents can get a $29 Keep Colorado Wild Pass when registering a car, motorcycle, recreation vehicle or light truck. The $29 pass is included in the registration pricing total for each vehicle a Colorado resident owns unless you choose to opt out. Your Douglas County vehicle registration renewal reminder will list the total fees due including the pass, or not including the pass, for you to choose from.

When you buy a Keep Colorado Wild Pass, your pass is your vehicle registration card with a Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) logo printed on your card. No additional window sticker or receipt is required or provided.

The Keep Colorado Wild Pass provides a 60% savings on an annual parks pass that provides entry to all Colorado state parks. Colorado Parks and Wildlife uses revenue from the passes to support local and state park systems, search and rescue teams, avalanche safety programs, wildlife conservation efforts, and outdoor accessibility and educational opportunities.

How do I use the Keep Colorado Wild Pass?

A Colorado Parks and Wildlife logo will be printed on your vehicle registration card, which gives you access to state parks. Simply show your vehicle registration card that shows your purchase to CPW staff at the entrance to the parks when asked. If the entrance is not staffed, you may enter the park with the knowledge that you may be checked for proof of purchase anytime.

I have multiple vehicles. Do I have to buy a Keep Colorado Wild Pass when I register each vehicle?

If you plan to use that vehicle to access state parks, yes. The Keep Colorado Wild Pass purchased during your annual vehicle registration is linked to the specific vehicle being registered. The pass is not transferable between vehicles.

How do I find the ownership tax on my vehicle registration?

The location of your vehicle registration ownership tax is highlighted in the two images below: a registration transaction receipt, and a vehicle registration card.

To request a copy of the receipt from your vehicle registration transaction, please click here.

To request a duplicate registration card, please click here. Allow one to two weeks for delivery. A duplicate registration card may also be obtained for a fee of $4.00 at any Douglas County Motor Vehicle Office.

Ownership tax information cannot be provided over the phone.
