Motor Vehicle offices will upgrade computer systems this summer 

Motor Vehicle Department Feedback

Expect longer waits temporarily

Statewide Motor Vehicle offices are getting a new computer system to replace their 1980’s MS-DOS system. During June residents should anticipate a longer wait time as staff members will be offsite being trained on the new system.

Our Weld County clerk’s offices run the local Motor Vehicle Division where residents register/title vehicles and receive license plates. 

To avoid the increased wait times, Weld Clerk and Recorder Carly Koppes is urging residents to renew their registration early and to do so online or by mail, if eligible. If you need an emissions test, drivers can take care of that first and after 48-hours will be able to renew online. Additionally, even if your grace month is about to expire, renewing online is still an option and drivers can print a temporary renewal receipt.

For those that have to visit the office in person, the clerk is encouraging those residents to allow plenty of time or, for Weld County residents, to schedule an appointment online (www.weldmotorvehicle.com).

Finally, residents should be aware that all Motor Vehicle offices will be closed Wednesday, Aug. 1 to Friday, Aug. 3 in order to install the new computer systems across the state. Online services will also be unavailable during this window and through the weekend of Aug. 4 and 5.
