Motor Vehicle Appointments

Please read the following items before making an appointment:

  • Do NOT make an appointment if you need a driver-related service (e.g., driver’s license, temporary driving permit, driving history, ID card, etc.). Driver’s Licenses/Permits are not issued by this office. They are issued by the Department of Revenue.
  • Appointments are not available for renewals. Vehicle renewals can be completed online, at a MV Express Kiosk, or by mail or drop box. See our Renewals page for more information about each option. (Remember you have a one month grace period – unless driving out of state).
  • Appointments are currently available for services that cannot be completed online or by mail (see box above). We are mainly taking appointments for:
    • New titles, out-of-state titles, title concerns
    • Private party sales
    • First-time registrations that could not be completed online or by mail
    • Or for transactions you have attempted online, but cannot complete and/or cannot complete in a timely fashion (due to travel, emergency, etc.)
  • If completing a first-time vehicle registration, you will have the option of purchasing a $29 Keep Colorado Wild (State Parks) Pass at the time of registration. Learn more here.
  • Appointments are available Monday-Thursday at all three offices – Boulder, Lafayette, or Longmont – from 7:30 a.m. – 4:45 p.m.
