The Bayfield Marshal's Office provides VIN verifications as a deputy is available to do so. These are done on a walk in basis only during normal business hours. The fee for a VIN verification is $20.00. Cash, checks and debit/credit cards are accepted (debit/credit cards will be charged a small fee). Please bring a title or bill of sale and a picture ID.  The vehicle must be present at the Bayfield Marshal's Office in order to do the verification. If for some reason your vehicle is not drivable please call 24 hour police dispatch at 970-385-2900 to make arrangements for a deputy to perform the VIN verification at your home.


Vin verifications are required on all vehicles that are titled out of a state other than Colorado. The Bayfield DMV located inside Bayfield Town Hall is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8am to 4pm.
