Motor Vehicle Registration Information

License plates are available at both offices of the Clerk & Recorder in Teller County. You must register your vehicle in the county where you live and/or are registered to vote. A business must license its vehicles in the county where the vehicles are primarily used.

Licensing fees are based on the year, weight, value, class of the vehicle and the area in which you live.  Many different plate types are available for various fees. Contact this office for more information or log on to the State of Colorado web site.

Colorado license plates are issued for a 12-month period from the date of the original application. The tab affixed to the lower left corner of the plate indicates the month of application and the tab in the lower right corner indicates the year of expiration. Renewal fees are due in the month and year indicated, although a one (1) month grace period is provided by the law.

Temporary permits are paper license plates which allow the licensee to drive a vehicle while the title and registration paperwork are being processed. Issuance of additional permits is at the Clerk's discretion. The permit fee is $6.22. Proof of insurance and secure and verifiable identification are required.
We accept cash, credit cards, Colorado checks, or money orders.
