Add Emergency Contact Information to your Driving Record.

Beginning January 6th, 2009, customers can now add emergency contact information to their driving record.

 

Following the lead of states such as Florida and Hawaii, if you've been issued a Colorado Driver's License, Instruction Permit or ID card, you can add the information for up to 2 emergency contacts to your Colorado record. This emergency contact information will be available only to an authorized officer of a law enforcement or public safety agency and only in the event of your injury or death as a result of an accident, criminal act, or other emergency situation pursuant to Colorado Revised Statute 42-2-121.5.

 

You can add or update emergency contact information two ways; at the time you are issued a Colorado Driver's License, Instruction Permit or ID card or by going on line, any time, to the website at:  https://www.colorado.gov/apps/dor/emergency/contact/start.jsf.

You must have an existing Colorado Driver's License, Instruction Permit or ID card to add or update emergency contact information through the website.

 

If you decide to add the information at the time you are issued your Driver's License, Instruction Permit or ID card, come prepared. You'll want to have your emergency contact information available when you are asked for it. The Driver's License Offices are unable to disrupt services to allow you to "run out to the car" or "make a quick phone call" to research your contact information.
