Registration fees are based on the year, weight, manufacturer’s suggested retail price (sticker price), the purchase date for the vehicle, and the date the buyer actually comes in to register the vehicle.

A named owner must be present with their ID in order to title, register and obtain a temporary permit. If you cannot be present, you must provide a Colorado notarized power of attorney form appointing an agent to do your transaction on your behalf. This form is available on the State of Colorado's DMV website.

Business owners must provide a Letter of Authorization stating agents authorized to do transactions on behalf of the business.

Sales / Use Tax
