NEW MESSAGE !!!! SENT FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE – DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES
On August 6, 2018, all Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) systems that control vehicle and vehicle-related information will be replaced with a new system called Colorado Driver License, Record, Identification and Vehicle Enterprise Solution (DRIVES). As part of this transition, transactions at Colorado motor vehicle offices will be unavailable August 1-5, 2018.
To assist customers who will be converting their dealer-issued temporary registration permits to permanent registrations, the DMV has programmed the tag issuance system to not issue temporary registration permits with an expiration date of August 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.
Please note that you will still be able to issue temporary registration permits using the current Fairfax system through August 4, 2018. Beginning August 6, 2018, you will begin to issue temporary permits through the new Colorado DRIVES system. You will see more information about training for this system later this summer.
The following information was shared by Todd O'Connell, CIADA!

The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is initiating a new system called Colorado Driver License, Record, Identification and Vehicle Enterprise Solution (DRIVES) in August. With this new system you will be printing the Temporary Tags directly through the DMV.
To be able to print the tags you must register for the new DRIVES platform before
May 30, 2018.
You should have received an email from the DMV on this two-step process.

Once the EULA is submitted, you will receive additional information regarding training on the new DRIVES system. Training materials will be available in July 2018.
The good news is once this process is in place, you will no longer have to pay to “print” the temp tag and registration but will still need the “temp boards” to mount and hold the permit.
Reminder to take advantage of CIADA’s low member pricing for your Temporary Tag Boards and all other form needs.
