LAKEWOOD, Friday, July 31, 2020 -- Temporarily legal and undocumented residents will be able to schedule first-time and renewal appointments online at eight driver license offices throughout the state starting Aug.1, 2020.
The scheduling of Colorado Road and Community Safety Act (SB 13-251) appointments will be offered at Alamosa, Durango, Fort Morgan, Glenwood Springs, Grand Junction, Lamar, Montrose and Pueblo driver license offices, and can be scheduled any time online at myDMV.Colorado.gov after the beginning of August.
The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will not offer the ability to schedule CO-RCSA appointments online at the state driver license offices in Aurora, Colorado Springs and Lakewood Westgate.
To schedule an appointment previously, Coloradans seeking a CO-RCSA appointment had to call 303-205-2335 or work with one of the DMV's nonprofit partners, who help Coloradans obtain licenses and identification cards. The addition will give these Coloradans more options when seeking essential DMV services.
Typically CO-RCSA appointments have greater availability at the previously mentioned offices, so customers can schedule appointments sooner than at larger offices.
To safeguard the health of customers and staff while providing critical services, all driver license offices are open on an appointment-only basis.
Additionally, the DMV is driven to fight COVID-19 and continues to take a variety of Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) approved precautions, including requiring customers to wear a face mask or covering to their appointments, screening both customers and staff for fevers and administering a COVID-19 questionnaire. All who have fevers or exhibit COVID-19 symptoms are not 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 should specify that a guest is needed when making an appointment.
As a temporary safety precaution, the DMV will not conduct drive tests and encourages soon-to-be-drivers to reach out to a driving school for testing.
All Coloradans regardless of immigration status must schedule appointments to be seen. Undocumented residents must schedule an appointment to start the process of obtaining a Colorado driver license, instruction permit or identification card at a location that offers full CO-RCSA services, while temporarily legal residents can schedule an appointment at any state driver license office.
Coloradans with general CO-RCSA questions should email our experts at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit dmv.colorado.gov for more information on Colorado Road and Community Safety Act services.
