Q

In the state of Colorado, do you have to be a certain age to have a vehicle registered in your name?


A

No. In Colorado, you do not have to be of a certain age to register a vehicle in your name.

The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) told us that there is not a minimum age to own a vehicle in this state. You can register and title a car at any age, as long as you are able to provide them with the documents they require as part of the registration process.

In order to register a vehicle in Colorado, you must provide the county motor vehicle office with proof of car insurance and secure and verifiable identification. What is permitted for identification are items like a US Passport, valid I-94 or most commonly submitted, a Colorado driver's license, permit or identification card.

Therefore, if you are a minor that wants to buy, register and title a car in your name in the state of Colorado, you should be able to do so as long as you have a driver's license or permit for identification purposes and are able to purchase auto insurance for your vehicle.

If you are under the age of 18, it may be difficult to find someone to sell you a vehicle. Contracts with minors are typically voidable, so usually a dealer or private seller will require a parent or guardian to sign with you on the sales contract.

The same holds true for car insurance policies, since they are also a form of a contract. Auto insurance companies will usually require anyone under the age of 18 to have a parent or guardian sign on the car insurance policy with the teenager to protect the insurance company from the minor trying to get out of the contract.

In Colorado, if you are able to buy a car, get your own car insurance on it and have a driver's license, then you should be able to register and title the car solely in your name.
