CO-RCSA SB251 Driver Licenses and IDs

Colorado Road and Community Safety Act (CO-RCSA SB13-251)

The Colorado Road and Community Safety Act passed by the Colorado legislature in 2013 allows all Coloradans to obtain a non-REAL ID compliant driver license, regardless of immigration status, as long as they meet all requirements and provide proof of identity and Colorado residency.

While driver licenses and identification cards issued under CO-RCSA can not be used for federal purposes, voting, or public benefits, these credentials are a valid Colorado identification.

Appointments are required at a full-service SB 251 driver license office (see map above).
