Are your license plates expiring soon?

If you’re not sure, there are three easy ways to find out:

  • Check the stickers on your vehicle’s license plate
  • Locate the expiration date on your vehicle registration card
  • Watch for your courtesy renewal card in the mail

There is a grace period for registration renewals to be completed no later than the last day of the month following the date of expiration. A late fee of $25 will be assessed each month (not to exceed $100) for expired license plates after the one-month grace period has expired.

Auto Insurance Requirement

Automobile liability insurance is generally defined as coverage for bodily injury you cause to another person or for property damage you cause to another person’s property through negligent use of your vehicle. The minimum amount of liability insurance required by Colorado law is as follows:

  • $25,000 per person for bodily injury;
  • $50,000 per accident for bodily injury; and
  • $15,000 per accident for property damage

Additional coverage, such as medical payment coverage, uninsured motorist coverage, comprehensive and collision are available, but not required.

Keep Colorado Wild ImageStarting on Jan. 1, 2023, Colorado residents can get a $29 Keep Colorado Wild Pass during their annual vehicle registration through the Division of Motor Vehicles.​

The Keep Colorado Wild Pass is an annual state park pass that provides entry to all Colorado state parks​​, protects wildlife, lands and water, supports search and rescue programs​​, funds trails and local community projects​, helps make the outdoors safe and available to all​​. When you hold a Keep Colorado Wild Pass, a Colorado Parks and Wildlife logo will be printed on your vehicle registration card.

The $29 pass fee will be included in the vehicle registration pricing total for each vehicle a resident owns. To decline the pass, you will need to subtract $29 from your vehicle’s total registration fee and pay that amount.
