My temporary tags will be expire soon. Can I come in and get license plates?

If you financed a vehicle through a dealer/lender, your title paperwork must be completed by the dealership and County. This process takes up to 60 days. If it has been less than 55 days since your temporary tags were issued, please wait to receive a Title Complete postcard in the mail.

Once you receive this postcard, you can then make an appointment at any Arapahoe County branch office to register your vehicle. See payment options and what to bring to your appointment on our Motor Vehicle registration page.

You can check to see whether your title documents have been completed at mydmv.colorado.gov. Once your title documents are complete, make a title completion appointment at any Arapahoe County Motor Vehicle office. If your temporary tags will expire before your title documents are complete, please contact your dealership for a temp tag extension.
