All Denver Motor Vehicle office locations are open for in-person services after closing for COVID-19.

You can renew your license in-person again, as Denver Motor Vehicle (DMV) offices open all locations to in-person services today. They closed just before Thanksgiving because of a rise in COVID-19 cases in the area. 

No appointments are necessary, but senior citizens and individuals with disabilities will be serviced as soon as possible. Upon arrival, customers will receive a number, and staff will notify each person when it's safe to enter.

All locations are open from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Their Wednesday hours are 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. To adhere to COVID-19 policies, all DMV locations are requiring face masks and social distancing.

The DMV is still encouraging everyone to complete transactions online if possible. You can complete various services online, including: 

  • Vehicle registration renewal
  • License plate/sticker replacement
  • Address update
  • Specific vehicle registrations (see the DMV website for policies)
  • Duplicate registration/title
  • Release of liability
  • Emissions extension
  • Estimate Fees and waivers
  • Title/registration history
  • Check title status

The DMV is reopening just a day after all Level Red counties in Colorado moved to Level Orange following Governor Polis's request to help businesses suffering from restrictions. Under Level Orange, counties must adhere to the following requirements

  • No more than 10 people gathered from two households
  • Non-critical offices must have less than 25% of in-person employees
  • Critical and non-critical retail max out at 50% capacity
  • Restaurants, houses of worship, and other indoor locations max out at 25% capacity or 50 people
  • Indoor gyms and rec centers max out at 25% capacity or 25 people
