Buying or Selling a Vehicle

Depending on how your vehicle was purchased will determine the documents required to register your vehicle in Douglas County.

If the vehicle was purchased from a dealer and is financed or leased, Colorado dealers will forward paperwork directly to the Douglas County Motor Vehicle Office. It may take up to 60 days for the paperwork to be processed.  After we have processed the paperwork, we will send a postcard (Title Complete Notice)  indicating a title number.

Did you purchase or sell your vehicle to an individual?  If the answer is yes, there are certain documents and instructions that need to be followed.
