VIN Verifications

VIN Verification

 A VIN verification is required before registering a vehicle in Archuleta County when the vehicle:

  • has an out-of-state title,
  • was purchased outside of Colorado,
  • was transferred on a Purged Bill of Sale, or
  • requires a correction to the description on the title.                                                                                                                         

The Clerk’s Office will be performing VIN Verifications from 8:00 am to 11:00 am Monday through Friday. There will be designated parking behind the courthouse.  Due to safety concerns VIN Verifications will not be performed in front of the courthouse.  The fee for this service is $20.00.  

Certified VIN Inspections 

A certified VIN verification must be performed by the Colorado State Patrol.
