New Resident Vehicle Registration

Licensing an Out of State Vehicle by New Residents

If you are a new resident to our state you will need the following documents to register your vehicle:

  • Verification of Vehicle Identification Number Form (DR2698) completed by one of the agencies listed on the form
  • An emission test from a Air Care Colorado test station
  • Proof of valid vehicle insurance
  • Title to the vehicle or, if the title is held by a lienholder, a photocopy of the title or current out of state registration; vehicles from non-titling states or foreign countries should contact our office at 720.523.6010 for registration requirements

Note: If this is a new purchase from out of state and never registered, this will be treated as either a cash vehicle purchase or financed vehicle.
