Department of Motor Vehicles Moving All Services Online During COVID-19 Crisis
To protect the health and safety of Colorado residents, and to help limit the spread of COVID-19, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is closing its branch offices for in-person services and moving all business online. This change was made effective Monday, March 16 and will continue until further notice. It covers all DMV offices.
We expect that many of our customers will be affected as they need to renew their registrations, apply for license plates or disabled placards and conduct any other business relating to their vehicles.
- Arapahoe and Douglas County residents – including people in Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree and Castle Rock – are urged to use online motor vehicle services available through www.colorado.gov/dmv. There you will find out how you can deal with registrations, renewals, titles, license plates or permits, and disability placards.
- Denver City and County residents should use online motor vehicle services available at www.denvergov.org/dmv to handle services including registrations, renewals, titles, license plates or permits, and disability placards. The City and County of Denver is providing a grace period through April 9, 2020 for expired vehicle registrations and newly purchased vehicles that haven’t yet been registered.
- All Colorado DMV locations are locally operated and state supervised. The decision to temporarily close the area’s DMV branches was made in response to guidance from the State of Colorado’s Department of Revenue, which has granted counties the authority to waive late fees for vehicle registration and renewals for 30 days while the Governor’s State of Emergency declaration is in effect.
We’re all responding to the evolving crisis in the best way we can. Schomp Automotive will make every effort to make sure that our customers are kept informed of any additional changes in these policies.
