Do not count on the State of Colorado or the County of Saguache to remind you to renew your plates!
As a courtesy to our residents, the State of Colorado will send out renewal notices for currently registered vehicles. Plates may be renewed online, by mail (PO Box 176), over the phone at (719)-655-2512 or in person.
As defined by Colorado Statute, renewals are required to be completed “not later than the last day of the month following the date of expiration.” This one month period is known as the “Grace Period." Any registration renewed following this grace period will be required to pay a "late fee" of $25 a month, not exceeding $100.
The Clerk and Recorder, Motor Vehicle staff is dedicated to helping you register your vehicle. The Motor Vehicle Office is responsible for issuing Saguache County residents: License Plates, Titles, and Renewals.
