A duplicate title is required when the original has been lost, stolen or destroyed. The cost for a duplicate title is $8.20. The title may only be given out if the person making application is an owner of the vehicle, power of attorney for the person who owns the vehicle, a representative of the lien holder or has been appointed by a Court document. The individual obtaining title must present proper identification to the motor vehicle employee. Acceptable forms of proper identification are as follows:
- A state issued Driver's License or ID card.
- A military ID card.
- A passport.
- An authorization to work in the United States card. (green card)
- Out-of-state drivers license.
Title with a Lien
If a title has a lien showing on it, the duplicate title must be mailed to the lien holder. The only exceptions to the rule are if the applicant has a valid release of lien from the lien holder or the lien says, "not filed in Colorado" on the title.
If you are planning to come into a Motor Vehicle Office located in Weld County, you may download form DR2539A, an application for duplicate title, and bring or mail this into the office with the correct fees and a copy of a proper form of identification.
