Have a vehicle that you are not using so you are not insuring? We have a form for that!

The State of Colorado requires that you register any vehicle that you own, whether it’s being operated on the roads or not. If you need to renew a vehicle that is not being operated and that you are presently not insuring, you do have the option of filling out an Affidavit of Non-use of vehicle insurance form (DR 2303).

This form is time-specific and you must present it at the time of renewing your registration. This completed form, including your signature (under the penalty of perjury), replaces the requirement of insurance, as long as it is not being used.

Please note: If your vehicle becomes operational, you are required to provide insurance. Feel free to reach out to our office with additional questions, 719-539-4004 in Salida and 719-395-8296 in Buena Vista.
