With the signing of HB 21-1014 (Disability Symbol Identification Document Act), Coloradans who might not be able to effectively communicate with first responders due to a cognitive, neurological, mental health, sensory needs, chronic illness, chronic pain and/or physical disability can choose to add a disability symbol identifier to their driver license or identification card.
A person can also choose to remove the symbol at any time. The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will begin allowing those eligible to add the disability symbol identifier to their driver license or identification on July 1, 2022.
