Colorado DMV to upgrade computer system

Title, registration services unavailable Aug. 1-5; driver license services unavailable Aug. 2-3

Posted

All Colorado title and registration services, including motor vehicle registration renewal, vehicle titling, International Registration Plan and ownership transfers, will be unavailable Aug. 1-5 to allow for technical upgrades.

Online registration renewal and kiosk registration renewal in participating counties will remain available, and individuals needing to renew eligible vehicles can use online services at mydmv.colorado.gov.

Colorado driver license services, both in-office and online, will be unavailable Aug. 2 and 3, and state driver license offices will be closed.

The closure will allow the state to replace the Colorado State Titling and Registration System (CSTARS), originally installed between 1983 and 1986, with a new system called Colorado DRIVES, according to a news release.

The new system will allow for better county-to-county integration, the release said. The system was implemented in February 2017 for driver services.

New online services will be available at mydmv.colorado.gov beginning Aug. 6. Among those services are:

• Improved online vehicle registration renewal

• Out of state emissions extension

• Emissions waiver application

• Generate prior receipts

• Duplicate registration receipt request

• 2 percent rental upload spreadsheet fee estimator

• Document uploading

• Personalized plate request

• Change of address

• New registration

Individuals whose driver license, identification card or motor vehicle registration expires in July or August 2018 are encouraged to renew early.
