MEEKER, Friday May 22, 2020 -- After reopening offices throughout the State with health precautions in place, the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is ready to re-establish its Driver License Office (DLO) in Meeker for two days in June.
The DLO will be at 555 Main St. in space provided by Rio Blanco County, and is set to be open from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, June 11 and 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, June 12. The DLO will offer most licensing services including:
- Driver license and commercial driver license renewal
- New and renewal identification cards
- Department of Transportation medical cards
- Driver License or ID card name changes
- Motor Vehicle Records
- Out-of-state driver license and ID card transfers
- Driver license downgrade
The DMV canceled its March, April and May dates as part of the state's comprehensive plan to save lives and fight the spread of COVID-19. These efforts continue even as the DMV re-establishes in-office services.
The DLO will be open on an appointment-only basis to help protect customers and staff as the DMV does its best to serve Coloradans. Area residents can schedule appointments by calling 720-295-2965.
During this phased reopening, the DMV won't be able to serve walk-in customers. Additionally, customers must wear a face mask or covering to be served. A DMV staff member will screen customers and staff with a laser thermometer for fevers as well as administer a COVID-19 questionnaire. Customers and staff members who have fevers or exhibit COVID-19 symptoms will not be allowed into state offices.
Customers should not bring guests because guests will not be allowed into any driver license office while social distancing is being utilized. If a guest is essential such as a caregiver or translator, customers must specify that a guest is needed when making an appointment.
The reopening of the DLO is part of the phased reopening plan the DMV worked with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to develop. The DMV worked with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to develop the phased plan, which follows CDPHE and the CDC's guidance.
