Question

Registration grace period in Colorado?

I have progressive I just bought a new car how long is the grace period to get it registered? It’s a 2000 vw Jetta. I just bought it on Tuesday and it failed emissions on Wednesday (I found out the culprit was a very dirty air filter and I need an oil change) I was wondering how long is the grace period in order to get it registered.

If the vehicle is going to be driven or parked on any public roads, it needs to be registered immediately. To my knowledge, there is no such thing as a grace period for registration. There are sometimes grace periods for additional vehicles for car insurance. For example, you have an established policy and you buy another vehicle - you might have a grace period for the new vehicle up to the policy limits of the currently insured vehicle.
