Phone & in person hearings
In-person hearings are scheduled in Greeley, Boulder, Lakewood, Colorado Springs and Grand Junction.
For people living outside these areas, phone hearings will be scheduled.
Express Consent cases are scheduled based on where the officer is located, not the respondent/driver lives.
If you are unable to make an in-person hearing you may be able to appear by telephone by contacting the Hearings Division at 303-205-5606 well in advance of your hearing date.
For a phone hearing, check-in by calling approximately 10 minutes before your scheduled hearing time. You will need to provide your case number or Driver License or Identification Card number when you check in, and a phone number you can be reached at. When the hearing is ready to be called, you will be called back at the number you provide.
Special notice regarding express consent hearings:
Due to upgrades in the phone system, phone hearings will be held in cases originating from the following law enforcement agencies:
Adams County Sheriff's Office

If you have been scheduled for a phone hearing and wish to appear in person, you may request to reschedule for an in-person hearing at the Lakewood office. However, due to caseload and scheduling deadlines, there is no guarantee that we will be able to accomodate your request. If your request is granted, the law enforcement officer may still appear by telephone.
