ID In Colorado
One document may satisfy more than one category. Make sure to carefully review the list of accepted documents to make sure you don’t have to make more than one trip.
The Colorado DMV also provides an
requirements chart to ensure you meet all requirements.
The DMV also suggests that you study the Colorado Driver Manual. Although this is a good recommendation, we suggest studying with an online practice test from our certified partner. These comprehensive learning tools are comprised of material from the driver manual, and they are presented in an easy to learn format. When you’re ready to take the test there is no need for an appointment but no tests will be administered after 4:00 pm for those offices that maintain 8:00 am to 5:00 pm hours.
