Larimer County Offices, Courts, District Attorney, and Landfill are closed on May 29, 2017 in observance of the Memorial Day Holiday. Critical services at Larimer County are not disrupted by closures.
The State of Colorado may approve an emission extension for the following reasons:
For ALL EXTENSIONS: If the state which the vehicle is currently in requires emissions testing, you must submit a PASSING emissions test from the state with your application (except for reason "D"). If an emissions test is not required, you must submit a vehicle identification number VIN inspection (DR2698) from the state the vehicle is currently in, to be completed by law enforcement ONLY, with your application.
While an approved extension will exempt your vehicle from the Colorado Emissions requirements, you may be in violation of other states vehicle registration laws, in which you currently reside. You may be required to register your vehicle in that state. You are advised to contact the local vehicle registration office for more information.
Vehicles registered using only a VIN Verification MUST be emission tested within 15 days upon returning to Colorado. Owners of vehicle that do not comply with the inspection requirements upon return to Colorado are subject to penalties as defined in 42-3-313 CRS.
Once the vehicle returns to Colorado, the vehicle owner MUST contact his or her County Clerk's Office to have his or her registration mailing address changed back to a Colorado address.
