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 a named owner of the vehicle, has a notarized Power of Attorney for the person who owns the vehicle, is a representative of the lienholder or has been appointed by a Court document. The individual obtaining the 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)
If a title has a lien showing on it, the duplicate title must be mailed to the lienholder. The only exceptions to the rule are if the applicant has a valid release of lien from the lienholder or the lien says, “not filed in Colorado” on the title.
