Denver Police to Conduct Targeted Enforcement of Expired Vehicle Registrations and Temporary License Plates

Vehicle Owners Encouraged to Register Vehicles or Renew Registrations Now to Avoid Being Pulled Over and Cited.

For a one-month period beginning on July 15, 2024, the Denver Police Department will conduct targeted enforcement of expired vehicle registration and expired temporary license plate violations.

DPD consistently hears complaints from residents about these violations, and this enforcement period is responsive to those community concerns. DPD encourages vehicle owners to obtain permanent license plates or renew their vehicle registration as required by law, and so they can avoid the possibility of a $95 fine from a Denver Municipal Code citation on top of registration/renewal costs.

Denver residents can find information about registering or renewing the registration for their vehicle, branch and kiosk locations, online services and more on the Denver Motor Vehicle website: According to Denver Motor Vehicle, registration of newly purchased or acquired vehicles must be done in-person at DMV offices, and registration renewals must be done online or at a kiosk. Vehicle owners are reminded that while vehicle registrations have a 30-day grace period after expiration, temporary license plates do not have a grace period after expiration.
