This is a common complaint I get on my show: “Hey, my car was on my private property and I got a ticket for an expired plate! Can they do that?”
The short answer is YES! All cars in Colorado – 1975 or newer – whether driven or not – are REQUIRED to have a current registration and tag.
Cars older than 1975, kept for “collection” that are not driven on public roads can get by with a special “Inoperable Collector’s Item Registration”.
By the way … if you have a car that requires a tag and registration and you’ve had it in an expired status for a long time … the penalties max out at $100 and will be added when you apply for a registration. You’ll also be required to pay all prior “ownership taxes” to bring everything up to date.
