Motor Vehicle Registration
Our Motor Vehicle Division assists Arapahoe County residents only with registering vehicles at four Motor Vehicle office locations

How to Register a Vehicle
All residents must register their vehicles within 60 days of purchase, and/or within 90 days of becoming a resident of Colorado. You must register your vehicle in the county where you reside. If you do not reside in Arapahoe County, see locations in other counties.

Initial registrations must be done in-person at a county office. Annual renewals may be done in-person, by mail, online or using our drop-off boxes at any branch. We send a courtesy renewal notice in the mail to customers; however, timely renewal of your registration is your responsibility.
