Titling a Vehicle

When a vehicle was 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 the 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 from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.  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.
