After the dealership or financial organization submits the title work to the Motor Vehicle Office, a Title Complete Notice (white postcard) will be mailed to notify the vehicle owner(s) that the title work has been processed. Plates then can be purchased and/or transferred. You may check the status of your title at https://mydmv.colorado.gov which will indicate if it has been processed.
To plate the vehicle in the office the owner(s) needs current proof of Colorado insurance. One owner must come into the office to show Secure and Verifiable Identification. If the owner cannot come into the office, they may complete a DMV Power of Attorney (DR2175) appointing someone else to process the transaction on their behalf. If transferring plates, the registration for the previous vehicle is required.
