The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office is warning citizens of several imposter websites involving online vehicle renewals. Websites claiming to be authentic Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) sites are being used to obtain personal and credit card information in addition to charging a premium price or overcharging citizens for services promised. The State DMV provides information about the unofficial, non-sanctioned websites at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/dmv/unofficial-websites
The El Paso County Motor Vehicle Department strives to take an innovative approach when it comes to customer service and providing a virtual government. In addition to renewing online, citizens have the option to renew by mail, kiosk, phone, Gov2Go Smart App or at any of our five locations throughout the county. Renewal postcards are mailed at the beginning of the month of expiration. If they no longer own the vehicle, citizens may release their liability at the website referenced below and disregard the notice.
