To register an out-of-state vehicle, bring the following to a Motor Vehicle Office:
Out-of-state title* or current out-of-state registration.
If your out-of-state registration is more than six months expired and your lienholder has your title, a photocopy (or fax copy) of title showing an existing lien will be accepted.
Form DR 2698 - Verification of Vehicle ID number (VIN) section only.
The verification can be completed by a Colorado law enforcement officer, at a Colorado licensed emission testing station or Colorado licensed automobile dealer. Per county rules, VIN verifications won't be done at any Jefferson County Motor Vehicle Offices.
Colorado emission test. See Emissions to determine whether a test is required for your vehicle.
If your vehicle is a truck with a curb weight (empty weight) of 4,500 lbs or more, you will need to get a certified weight slip if the weight does not show on the title or registration.
Proof of Insurance is required for registration - trailers exempt.
*If you are from a state that does not title, or if your title document is from another country, please call Jefferson County Motor Vehicle at 303-271-8100 Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to speak with a representative.
