Denver DMV closes to in-person transactions beginning Nov. 23
To protect the health and safety of employees and the community and to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Denver County, all five Denver Motor Vehicle (DMV) branches will close to the public and the city’s Taxpayer Service Center (TPS) will reduce its hours beginning Monday, Nov. 23 until further notice. The decisions were made in response to Denver’s COVID-19 positivity rate and move to a level red – Safer at Home Severe Risk – on the state’s COVID-19 protection dial.
Denver Motor Vehicle – Title & Registration Services
Beginning Mon., Nov. 23 and lasting until further notice, all Denver Motor Vehicle branches will be closed to the public. Residents with registrations/tags that expired prior to November will be served in-person through the end of the week (Nov. 20).
Motor vehicle staff will continue to process transaction by phone, mail and online. Most transactions can be completed online and residents are strongly encouraged to visit denvergov.org/dmv to complete their transaction or use the mail. The DMV has experienced three-times the normal phone traffic in recent months, so residents are advised that long hold times will occur. Drop boxes are available for dealer transactions not available online or by mail.
The following are examples of transactions that can be completed online at denvergov.org/dmv:
Change of Address
Release of Liability
Title & Registration History

DPD officers and Denver Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Right of Way Enforcement agents will not be enforcing expired tags in Denver beginning Mon., Nov. 23 until further notice. Drivers should note that the same provisions may not be available in other counties. As a reminder, all drivers are provided a 30-day grace period from the date of expiration of their vehicle registration/tags.
Denver Motor Vehicle provides title and registration services only and is only available for Denver residents. Residents of other counties need to use the motor vehicle branches located in their home county. Driver license services and emissions testing are offered by the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles.

Governor Jared Polis was joined by two frontline healthcare workers as he provided an update on Colorado’s response to COVID-19.
“We’re facing the most dangerous period yet in the COVID-19 pandemic. Now is the time to be extra cautious. Even though many of you are doing what you need to do to protect yourself and those around you, we can all do a little more to be safer. That means avoiding personal gatherings, connecting with friends virtually and wearing a mask in public,” said Governor Polis.
