Insurance Requirements

Colorado motorists are required by state law to carry Colorado automobile insurance and keep proof of Colorado insurance in the vehicle. The Eagle County Clerk & Recorder’s Office is required to verify proof of insurance prior to the issue of temporary registration permits or registering a motor vehicle.

Please note per Colorado legislation C.R.S. 42-3-105(l) (d), which came into effect on July 1, 2014, out-of-state insurance policies cannot be accepted.

Proof of Colorado insurance must include the following:

  • Effective dates of coverage, which must be current
  • Vehicle description including the vehicle identification number
  • Name of insured person (cannot be in the previous owner's name)

The following are accepted forms of Colorado insurance:

  • A Colorado insurance card
  • A Colorado insurance binder or policy
  • The declaration page from the Colorado insurance policy
  • A letter from your insurance agent on company letterhead verifying Colorado insurance coverage

Additional information

  • Insurance companies are required to submit vehicle and driver information to the Colorado Motorist Insurance Identification Database which is updated nightly.
  • If the database matches, the Eagle County Clerk & Recorder’s records will show if a vehicle has insurance. If the database does not match, evidence of insurance must be provided before the vehicle is registered and renewed.
  • Failure to have valid insurance that puts a vehicle owner in a late fee situation is not an exemption of late fees.
  • Proof of insurance is not acceptable if it is in the previous owner's name.
