VIN Verification
A VIN verification is required before registering a vehicle in Arapahoe County when the vehicle:
  • has an out-of-state title,
  • was purchased outside of Colorado,
  • was transferred on a Purged Bill of Sale, or
  • requires a correction to the description on the title.

Arapahoe County's Motor Vehicle Division performs VIN verifications and completes a Verification Vehicle Identification Number Form (DR 2698 from Colorado Department of Revenue) at our Aurora, Centennial and Littleton Branch Offices from 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday-Friday; excluding holidays and during inclement weather conditions.

The fee is $12 per vehicle, payable by cash, check or credit/debit card.

A VIN verification is not the same as a Certified VIN Inspection. In some cases, a Certified VIN Inspection is required. For more information, please visit the Colorado State Patrol VIN Inspection web page. If you are not sure if your vehicle requires a certified VIN inspection, please contact us at (303) 795-4500.
