  • Renewals with the Office of Motor Vehicles


    Colorado law allows a one-month grace period after a registration is due for renewal, excluding Special Mobile Machinery (SMM) off-highway tabs, Persons with Disabilities placards and temporary permits. For example, if your plates are due in January, your grace period is the month of February.

    Online renewals are available for basic renewals.

    Follow these steps to renew your vehicle registration:

    • Address envelope to:
      Jefferson County Motor Vehicle
      100 Jefferson County Parkway, Ste. 2540
      Golden, CO 80419-2540
    • Make check or money order payable to Jefferson County.
      Please write your license plate number on the check.
    • If an Emissions test is necessary, send the bottom portion of the gasoline results sheet or the small diesel results sheet with the postcard and payment.
    • Return the postcard and payment to the Jefferson County Clerk's office before the last business day of your grace period. Please allow for postal delivery time, as postmarks do not guarantee processing or prevent late fees.

    Important Note:
    Proof of Insurance required for registration - trailers exempt.

    CLS/EM fee:
    The $25 fee, shown as CLS fee, on renewal cards (EM fee on registration receipts) is the emissions testing fee collected when a mobile emission test (RapidScreen View exit disclaimer policy page for links to third-party websites.) has been accepted and processed as part of your renewal.

     Payment Options

    • Cash, check or credit and debit cards accepted
    • Please make checks Payable to Jefferson County (no checks under $10 - dealerships exempt)
    • Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover are accepted - subject to additional convenience fee.
