    • New titles, out-of-state titles, title concerns
    • Private party sales
    • First-time registrations that could not be completed online or by mail
    • Or for transactions you have attempted online, but cannot complete and/or cannot complete in a timely fashion (due to travel, emergency, etc.)

If your service needs to be completed in-person, please visit our Appointments page to schedule your appointment online. Please note that you will be required to wear a mask during your appointment (for ages 12+; masks will be provided for those who do not have one). In almost all circumstances, vehicle renewals can be completed online or at a MV Express Kiosk. (Remember you have a one month grace period – unless driving out of state).

Boulder MV Express Kiosk – The self-service kiosk at the Boulder Clerk and Recorder is available for use, but a staff member will need to give you access to the building. Someone will greet you at the door when you arrive. Simply tell them that you are there to use the kiosk.
