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.
