What is the correct way to sign the back of a Colorado title when you sell the vehicle?

The correct way to sign off a title is to print your name exactly as it appears on the front of the title in the sellers section of the back of the title. Then sign under your printed name.

On Colorado titles, all persons listed on the front of the title must sign or release interest on the back of the title.

NOTE: Some out-of-state titles only require one signature if the front of the title shows “or”.

The odometer, date of sale and purchase price should also be filled in at the time of sale. (Please reference FAQ question “I just moved here from out of state” for out of state vehicles)
