Motor Vehicle and Driver's License Services

DRIVES System Error Notice

The State of Colorado has noted that their DRIVES system incorrectly assessed a late fee for the months of March-June on vehicle renewals processed on or after July 1st via online and kiosk transactions. Arapahoe County has elected to have the state process refunds for those individuals who qualify. In September, the state will post information regarding those customers who can expect a refund. At this time customers have not been identified.

Please see below for our most frequently asked questions since reopening from the COVID19 closure:

Dealer Documents- We are currently coordinating drop-boxes for customers and dealers to facilitate easy document transfers at our offices. At this time, dealers can either make an appointment for drop-off, or continue to mail documents in. Documents may be sent via UPS/Fed-Ex directly to our Littleton location at this time, or mailed in to the PO Box below:

Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder’s Office
Motor Vehicle
PO Box 9006
Littleton, CO 80160-9011

Law Enforcement- Law enforcement has been contacted by both Arapahoe County and the State of Colorado, alerting them to the challenges many entities and customers face in renewing temporary tags and registrations that expire during the COVID-19 closure. Law enforcement has been asked to be lenient during this time in issuing these citations. Drivers may continue to use expired registration tabs and/or temporary license plates that have expired while awaiting counties to reopen to the public.

Online Transactions- Many transactions can be completed online at https://mydmv.colorado.gov. Please visit this State Portal website to review online options for vehicle and driver license/ID transactions including Renewals, Duplicate Titles, Changing Addresses, and more!
