So, I’ve been thinking on what we need to do here in Colorado when our vehicle registration expires. Ours doesn’t expire until January 1st, 2017, but I want to start preparing now for the renewal registration fee, and learn how the state of Colorado does things. Jared’s driver license expires soon, so I’m also looking into driver’s license renewals and what to do here in the state of Colorado.
Vehicle Registration Renewals
- Registration Renewal in Colorado (DMV) | Maintenance, Autos
- Registration Card Example (DMV) | Maintenance, Autos
- Online Vehicle Registration Renewal (DMV) | Maintenance, Autos
What I’ve Learned:
- We must renew our registration every 12 months, and it can be renewed online, by mail, and in person.
- The Colorado DMV will send us a renewal notice before our registration expires, which will include the registration fee and other information. They will send it to us a month before the expiration date.
- We will have the month it expires and the month after that to get the renewal taken care of. So for us, we’ll have all of January and February of next year to get our registration renewal done.
- To get an estimate for the fee we will owe, we will need to visit our county registration office closer to the renewal date (renewal fees are not given over the phone).
Driver’s License Renewals
- Renewals (DMV) | Maintenance, License
- Renewing Your License in Colorado (DMV) | Maintenance, License
- Online Driver’s License and ID Card Renewal (DMV) | Maintenance, License
What I’ve Learned:
- We can renew our license online, by mail, and in person. Applicants turning 21 years of age must apply for a new license after their 21st birthday by visiting an office.
- The new drivers license will be mailed to our address within 30 days.
- We must bring our valid drivers license, proof of our social security number, proof of our current physical Colorado address documents, and an applicable fee.
