Fee for Colorado Driver Licenses Increasing

Beginning July 1, the fee for a Colorado driver license will increase by $1--from $26 to $27. Other fees are unchanged. 

This increase was a result of House Bill 16-1415, intended to offset the cost of providing Division of Motor Vehicles driver services. 

The fee for a driver license under SB-251 - the Colorado Road and Community Safety Act - will not change, since the cost of providing the service is already fully recouped.
