Procedure For A Duplicate Colorado Title
To comply with Colorado Laws this procedure is to be followed when applying for a Colorado duplicate title.
Step What You Need To Do
Complete and sign the Duplicate Title/Lien Request and Receipt title application (DR 2539 A). The application
must be signed by the owner, lienholder, or authorized agent by power of attorney of the vehicle listed on this
form. The individual signing the duplicate title application must provide identication information.
Colorado duplicate titles can only be applied for by the owner, lienholder, or an authorized agent. If the authorized
agent applies for the duplicate title, they must submit a Power of Attorney (POA) signed by the owner or lienholder.
If the Power of Attorney form used does not have a place for the grantor's identication information, a DR 2842
Supplemental Secure and Veriable Identication Information and Attestation Clause must also be submitted.
Do not send photocopies of identication or original identication card(s), such as Driver's license
or Passport.. If the POA is VIN specic, the original must be submitted and will be returned upon request.
If a General POA is submitted, a photo copy or fax copy is acceptable (notary seal must be visible on copy)
and must be included with each application. The DR 2175 (Colorado POA) and the DR 2842 are available
at the County Motor Vehicle ofces, the Vehicle Services Section, or online at www.colorado.gov/revenue.
A lien release is required for all active liens. The lien release must be on the lienholder's letterhead (letterhead
is not required if lienholder is an individual). Photo and fax copies are accepted and must include vehicle year,
make, VIN, titled owner's name(s), agent's signature, date of lien release and must be signed under penalty of
perjury in the second degree as dened in C.R.S. 18-8-503.
The title will be issued omitting all reference to the lien pursuant to C.R.S. 42-6-126.
All duplicate title transactions require identication. Secure and Veriable ID (see form DR 2841) is required for
titles issued on or after July 1, 2006.
If you are applying as lienholder and the lien is NOT FILED in Colorado, you must include a Power of Attorney
from the owner, (see step 2 above) or, in the case of repossession, include a Statement of Repossession AND
a certied copy of the security agreement.
