A VIN verification is required before registering a vehicle in the City and County of Denver when the vehicle:
- has an out-of-state title,
- was purchased outside of Colorado,
- was transferred on a Purged Bill of Sale, or
- requires a correction to the description on the title.
Denver Motor Vehicle performs VIN verifications and completes a Verification Vehicle Identification Number Form (DR 2698 from Colorado Department of Revenue), Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 3 PM at any of our branch offices for $20.00 per vehicle (weather permitting).
