About Colorado License Plates

In Colorado, license plates are issued to trailers, motor homes, passenger vehicles, commercial vehicle, trucks, SUVs, and motorcycles. There are two basic categories of plates, specialty or custom license plates and  standard license plates. Both standard and specialty plates need to be displayed the same with registration stickers on the rear plate only. If you need to obtain license plate for a new vehicle or replace one’s on an existing vehicle or request specialty plates you will need to do so within the first 30 days of your purchase. When doing so you will also need to add new tags to the rear plate. If you choose to go with custom plates, it will typically cost a bit more.

Responses to “Colorado License Plate Lookup

  1. The 303-757-9011 number should be removed as CDOT has nothing to do with vehicle registration. You also have the name Colorado Department of Transportation Link to Department or Revenue websites. You should clean these up so as not to confuse the people.

  2. I bought a new vehicle about 6 weeks ago and need to get it plated. Can i do this online or do i have to come in? if i have to come in do i need an appointment and what information do i need to bring?

    thank you

  3. If someone has a specialty plate, how do you find the lettered search code for that plate? Without it, just searching the license plate code returns no results

  4. I have a 1914 license plate which I found in Leadville, CO. How can I find out who owned the vehicle and what model car it belonged to?

    1. K.Austin, unfortunately our Colorado license plate database only goes back to the 1980’s. We cannot run vintage or older vehicles through our license plate lookup resources. You can try contacting the DMV about this but it’s somewhat doubtful they have the paper records from over 100 years ago.

  5. I sent for my tags in March the 18th and I still haven\’t received the tags they expire in April now it\’s May. Please advice Thank You

    1. Rodger, unfortunately our resources do not have access to that information in Colorado. If you want to inquire if a vehicle is stolen you can run a VIN check with National Insurance Crime Bureau website or contact you local police department to make this inquiry.

    1. Leslie, you might want to contact the Colorado police and report a missing person report if you feel something happened to your brother. We do not have the ability to lookup Colorado license plate numbers by a person’s name.

  6. My name is Mary c. Maes I’m now in arizona but will be living back and forth in both states Arizona and Colorado. My plates are due in May which I will still be in Arizona. Please advice me where to get my plates though I would like to continue to have Colorado plates. My Colorado address is 1906 S. Carr st. In Lakewood. Ziggylex @ Will be in Arizona through the summer or for as long as I can stand the heat.

    1. Hello Mary,

      Thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately we cannot directly assist you license plate registration since we are not affiliated with the Colorado DMV or the Arizona MVD Offices. That being said, as long as you have a physical address in Colorado you should be able to register your vehicle and Colorado license plate with the Colorado DMV. A link to the Colorado DMV Office is listed below for your convenience.
