How to get a new and transfer title in Colorado

When you get a state issued title in Colorado it verifies that you are the legal owner of your vehicle. If you are purchasing a new vehicle it is required by the state to have a new title in Colorado. If you have a used car you want to give away or sell you will have to do a title transfer within 30 days.

Getting a new title on a new vehicle:

When you purchase a new vehicle the dealership will usually handle the title process. They will submit the necessary fees and paperwork for the buyer to get a new title in Colorado. If you would like to handle this process on your own you also have that option.
