Colorado DMV driver license offices receiving hardware and software updates

Some offices will close for 1 day to install the rolling updates 

LAKEWOOD, Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2020 -- The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is updating computer hardware and software at driver license offices throughout the state. 

The new hardware and software is part of a cyclical update the DMV uses to provide better, more efficient customer service while safeguarding Coloradans’ personal information.   

Most Coloradans will not be impacted by the update, which started in early November and will continue through mid-January, but because the update affects the equipment DMV team members use to serve Coloradans, some offices will be closed during normal business hours. 

Of the State’s 35-plus driver license offices, seven will close for the hardware and software update. The following offices will close for one business day:

  • Friday, Nov. 20 — Cortez
  • Monday, Nov. 23 — Craig
  • Tuesday, Nov. 24 — Steamboat Springs and Alamosa
  • Friday, Dec. 4 — Trinidad
  • Monday, Dec. 7 — Lamar
  • Friday, Dec. 18 — Fort Morgan

The DMV is reaching out to Coloradans who had appointments scheduled during the closure dates with alternate accommodations. If you have an appointment at an office that will be closed for the update and have not heard from a DMV Team Member, please email   

The DMV encourages Coloradans to utilize DMV online services when possible. There are 35 services available online at, giving you plenty of reasons to skip the trip to your local DMV office. Additionally, almost 20 DMV online services are available on the myColorado™ app, available on Android and iOS devices.
