Colorado's Division of Motor Vehicles operates under the Department of Revenue. It issues vehicle titles, plates, and vehicle registrations, and processes driver's license applications and renewals. The office also investigates fraudulent activities related to motor vehicles and identity theft.
Vehicle-related services are handled by your local County Title and Registration Office. To register your vehicle, you will need a copy of the title and proof of insurance and identification. In some cases, proof that the vehicle passed an emissions test is also required. You must register your vehicle within 60 days of purchase or within 90 days of becoming a Colorado resident. You can also apply for plates at the County Title and Registration Office, including military exempt plates and personalized plates.
To obtain or renew your driver's license, or to get a state identification card, visit one of the many Driver Services Offices throughout the state. Before applying for a new license, gather your identification documents and schedule a driving test. You will need to show your Social Security Number, provide proof of identification and current address, and pay an application fee. If you are moving from another state, you can transfer your license without taking the road test.
Young drivers who are 15 to 15 ½ years old can apply for a minor's permit with the completion of a 30-hour driving education course and written test. You must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and provide proof of identification and residence. At age 16, you can apply for a minor's license, which remains valid until 20 days after your 21st birthday.
