Auto Title and Registration for New CO resident

The military exclusion is similar in almost every state. You don't have to "convert" to the local plates or pay the taxes. You are viewed more as a temporary resident that will be returning back home after your service. If your spouse works and has a car in her name, she will have to get plates and pay taxes, though. The way to avoid this is to have all cars in your name or both names. The provisions for students are very similar.

However, if you are military but want to vote here, you will need to pay the taxes. My husband registered to vote here when we lived here a few years ago and we had to pay the taxes on our vehicles when we moved back even though we are military.

Good call. I've always just voted absentee. I never had much of a desire to assimilate into any of the places I was stationed. I didn't chose to live any of those places.

Question vehicle registration

we will be moving to colorado soon and i have been doing my homework on somethings, but the whole dmv thing has me lost. here in nj we pay once a year $75.00 fee (for each car)for the registration and give the insurance company name and policy number and take it through inspection which is free and done. from what i gather so far in colorado, you pay a tax on what the car is worth and prove it not stolen and of course have insurance. am i even close to having this right?

we have an 04 trailblazer and 08 chevy pickup
is there a website to look up what this will cost? i did look on the state site but didnt see anything

Revenue-MV:Registering a Vehicle

To register your cars, you need the following:

1. Have proof of insurance (from a Colorado agent)
2. VIN Verification. You will need to find a place to do this, usually charge $20...rip off! Some police departments do this for no charge.


The cost is based on MSRP when new and how old the vehicle is. We have a 2006 Dodge Magnum R/T AWD ($33K MSRP) that just cost $260 to renew. My wife's 2006 TrailBlazer SS ($36K MSRP) cost around $300.

Question Vehicle registration

I've heard that Colorado is expensive to register your vehicles. Can anyone tell me if this is true? How much does it cost?

I suppose that depends on where you're coming from! As posted above, it's based on the age and MSRP of your vehicle. Here's a chart that shows you exactly what you'll pay: El Paso County, Colorado - Motor Vehicle (http://car.elpasoco.com/Motor_Vehicle/Ownership_Tax.htm - broken link)

Don't ask here and get some half-baked answer. Call the El Paso County Clerk's office and ask. They actually would know . . .
