I sold my car, how do I release liability on it?

Online:  To release the liability on your vehicle regardless of when the vehicle was sold, go to dmv.colorado.gov/vehicles

You will need the license plate number and either the VIN number or the Verification Code which is found on the back of the registration card.

In Person: This can only be done within 5 days of the sale of your vehicle, otherwise you must release the liability online. Visit a Montrose County Vehicle Registration office near you. Montrose is located at 320 S 1st St Room 104 or Nucla is located at 300 Main St.

Note for all online transactions:  Be sure to use the State of Colorado’s official websites of dmv.colorado.gov or mydmv.colorado.gov.  Never use “.org” or “.com”
