Child support

Your license will be suspended if the Colorado Child Support Enforcement Program notifies the DMV that you are not in compliance with your child support order. 


While under suspension, you may not drive until your license is reinstated.


By law, you cannot have a hearing on a child support suspension. However, you may request a probationary driver’s license. A probationary driver’s license on a child support suspension is good for 90 days and allows you to drive to/from work and for performing duties in the scope of your employment. No other driving is permitted. To request a probationary driver’s license, contact the Department of Motor Vehicles (not the Hearings Division) and advise them that you are seeking a child support probationary driver’s license.


To get your license back, at a minimum, you will be required to show compliance with your child support order. For further reinstatement information, click here.
