Coloradans #SkipTheTripCO: Online driver license, ID card renewals exceed 50,000 in May

 
LAKEWOOD, Friday June 26, 2020 -- The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is pleased to announce that online driver license and identification card renewals surpassed 50,000 in a month for the first time in May.
 
The milestone is a testament to Coloradans and their efforts to slow COVID-19's spread as well as the DMV and the actions it took to expand online services afte Gov. Jared Polis issued a stay at home order.
 
Coloradans renewed their driver licenses and ID cards 53,517 times, which is up 35,973 over May 2019's tally of 17,544 online renewals.
 
In light of COVID-19, the DMV is in the initial phase of a digital transformation that will expand online services, allowing the DMV to bring even more essential services to Coloradans wherever they are so long as they have an internet connection.
 
Part of that expansion is empowering seniors to renew their driver licenses online. The DMV strongly encourages Coloradans older than 65 to join the 53,517 Coloradans who renewed their license in May and renew their license online at www.myDMV.Colorado.gov.
 
The DMV offers a plethora of online services, including license and ID card renewals, vehicle registration renewals, paying a traffic ticket, motor vehicle records, first-time vehicle registration and many more.
The DMV began reopening its offices to the public on an appointment-only basis May 4 and had reopened all but one by May 12. With most offices open, many of which working extended hours, Coloradans still opted to #SkipTheTripCO and renewed their driver license or ID card online.
 
"We want to say thank you to all the Coloradans who used myDMV and skipped the trip to their local driver license office," Driver License Director Rosalie Johnson said. "By using myDMV, Coloradans put the health of those visiting our offices and our staff first -- plus they were able to save time by renewing online."

Coloradans are strongly encouraged to #SkipTheTripCO and use any of the DMV's 35 online services at www.myDMV.Colorado.gov. People needing in-office-only services should schedule appointments by visiting www.myDMV.Colorado.gov or calling 303-205-2335 for CO-RCSA services.

As a health precaution, customers are required to wear a facemask or covering during their appointment. More information on the health precautions the DMV is taking to safeguard customers and staff is available at www.Colorado.gov/DMV/PhasedReopening.
 
The DMV appreciates Coloradans' patience as it works to provide the best service possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.
