Vehicle Identification Number Verification

The State of Colorado requires a certified inspector or a law enforcement agency to inspect the vehicle identification number (VIN) to ensure it matches the vehicle that is being registered and to verify that the number has not been altered or is not fictitious. VIN verification is usually requested when attempting to register a vehicle with an out-of-state title, if the vehicle was purchased outside of Colorado, or if the vehicle hasn't been registered for long periods of time.

Verification Process

For the verification process, please bring any official paperwork with the VIN, such as the vehicle title, previous registration, bill of sale, insurance card, etc.
