The program area map at http://www.colorado.gov/cs/Satellite...ame=RMVWrapper looks like it covers all of El Paso County west of Peyton Hwy.

Could be that it was something that the person performing the registration could just step out and check in the parking lot...but I don't recall every having to go to a dealer or somewhere and getting a piece of paper to bring with me.

Heck, maybe they're doing it right in this state, if it streamlines the process at the DMV, huh?

I know in Washington I did not have to get one to register my vehicle that I'd brought from Iowa. But I did have to change the title over to a WA title. Here you don't have to do that, although you can if you want (I did since I doubt if I'm ever going back to WA.)

Make sure you registered the vehicle in your original state. If you buy it in another state and move to Colorado 3 days later without having registered it, you'll have to pay sales tax. In that case, you would want to immediately register it in the other state upon purchasing it, file your change of address, and wait for a month or so to get your paperwork in the mail. If you have not registered it into your name in the other state, you would pay sales tax.

It takes about a week to get your driver's license in the mail. They punch a hole in your previous state's ID and then give you a piece of paper (temporary ID) stapled to the old ID that states you are now a resident of CO.

Good point JCelmer. Requirements for active military are more relaxed.

I've got a 30-day tag on a new car, want to register in CO when we get there in 3 weeks. Anyone see an issue with registering a new car with 30-day tag that hasn't been registered in any other state? Active-duty military.

Thanks!
