TITLING AND REGISTERING A VEHICLE

 

How to Title and Register a Vehicle

              Vehicle purchased from a Colorado Dealer; we need the following:

  • Title or certificate of origin
  • Standard sales tax receipt
  • Odometer disclosure statement with signature from seller and purchaser
  • Application for title
  • Original or certified copy of security agreement if financed
  • Other documents depending on the specific deal, i.e. Trust documents
  • If the vehicle is financed or leased, Colorado dealers will forward paperwork directly to Morgan County Motor Vehicle Office along with their security agreement, and a Title Complete Notice will be mailed to you.
  • Bring into the Motor Vehicle Office your Title Complete Notice and proof of current insurance to register your vehicle.  The person listed on the titling documents will need to come into the office with his/her drivers license or a notarized power of attorney form will be required.
  • If you paid cash for the vehicle, the dealer will likely send the paperwork directly to you, usually by certified mail.  Bring in those documents to title your vehicle along with proof of insurance and drivers license.
 

Vehicle purchased from an individual:

  • Title
  • Bill of sale indicating year, make, vin number, purchase price and date of purchase
  • If the title is issued by a state other than Colorado, then a VIN inspection is required.
  • Odometer disclosure statement if vehicle is less than ten years old.  Most titles have a section on the title for the odometer disclosure statement which needs to be signed by purchaser.
  • Current proof of insurance to register vehicle
  • Weight slip, if pickup truck weighs over 4500# and is not listed on title
  • The buyer listed on the titling documents will need to come into the office with his/her drivers license or a notarized power of attorney form will be required.

Vehicle purchased from an out of state dealer:

  • Title or certificate of origin
  • Proof that state sales tax was paid, or we will collect sales taxes
  • Purchase order from dealer showing purchase price
  • Verification of VIN must be completed by a Colorado law enforcement officer or Colorado licensed dealer
  • Odometer disclosure statement signed by buyer and seller
  • Original or certified copy of security agreement if financed
  • Proof of insurance required to register vehicle
  • Weight slip may be required if empty weight (cwt.) not listed on title
  • The person listed on the titling documents will need to come into the office with his/her drivers license or a notarized power of attorney form will be required.
