Colorado residents selling their vehicles may now voluntarily report an ownership transfer to the Division of Motor Vehicles.
Beginning Jan. 1, pursuant to Colorado law CRS 42-6-109(3), created with Senate Bill 18-073, a person transferring ownership of a vehicle may voluntarily notify the Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles within five days of transfer of ownership at mydmv.colorado.gov or in person at a county motor vehicle office. This notification serves to remove the seller’s liability for the buyer’s actions involving the vehicle after the sale is complete, the Colorado Department of Revenue said in a press release. Information entered into this system is available to law enforcement agencies.
This new process provides additional protection for sellers.
This new service is one of 35 services available at mydmv.colorado.gov.
