Colorado License Plate with the letters CDFC

The CDFC was created by the Colorado legislature to help Coloradans with disabilities by supporting organizations that have new and innovative ideas that benefit the disability community.

The CDFC has statutory authority to sell license plate configurations by auction or at a "Buy it Now" price.

  • License plate configurations purchased through the CDFC do not need to be registered to a vehicle at the time of purchase.
  • The amount paid to the CDFC for the license configuration DOES NOT include registration, taxes, fees, vanity plate cost, or other charges regularly paid to register a vehicle. A successful bidder will need to register the license configuration through a special process with the DMV to place it on a vehicle.
  • Please review the Terms & Conditions prior to purchase.
  • If a license configuration was obtained through the regular DMV process and allowed to expire, after 13 months the CDFC may reserve the configuration for future sale.
  • If a configuration does not appear on the CDFC reserved list the CDFC does not have control of the configuration. Please check with the Division of Motor Vehicles to determine if it is available.
  • The CDFC is not required to add a requested license configuration to an auction or to make it available at a "buy-it-now" price. Some configurations may be retained for special auction opportunities.
  • The CDFC will not notify you if your requested license configuration is added for sale. It is up to the requestor to monitor the auction website.
