Fees for Colorado Driver Licenses and Services to Rise July 1

PICT Sample Colorado Driver License - DOR

Beginning July 1, 2016, the fees for Colorado driver licenses and several related services will change.

These changes were authorized in HB16-1415 and are intended to help offset the cost of providing Division of Motor Vehicles services.

The fee for a driver license for U.S. citizens and individuals able to demonstrate permanent or temporary lawful presence in the U.S. will increase by $1 to $26.  The fee for a driver license under SB-251 (Colorado Road and Community Safety Act) will not change, because the cost for providing this service is already fully recouped.

A new temporary registration permit will be issued by  five auto dealers and three county motor vehicle offices as part of a pilot program beginning May 23. All auto dealers and county motor vehicle offices will be issuing new permits by the end of June. 

The most noticeable change to the new permit is the requirement for it to be placed on the rear of the vehicle where the permanent license plate is normally affixed.
