To Apply at a Driver's License Office:


  • Provide your state or county certified birth certificate or other acceptable form of identification
  • Provide your social security number
  • Pass both written and vision screening tests
  • Complete an Affidavit of Liability Guardianship (DR2460) form
  • Provide a course completion statement from an approved Driver Education course indicating you have completed and passed the classroom portion of a state-approved driver education course within 6 months prior to applying for your instruction permit
    • The 30 hour classroom study course can be either in a classroom or taken on the internet. Click here for a list of approved instructors.

The Driver's Education Permit allows only the signer of the DR2460 and/or the Driver Education Instructor to complete and log the 50 hours required on the drive time log sheet.


If the person(s) who signed the DR 2460 does not hold a valid Colorado driver's license, the signer may appoint an Alternate Permit Supervisor. The Alternate Permit Supervisor must hold a valid Colorado Driver's License and be 21 years of age or older. Drive time with an Alternate Permit Supervisor will count toward the 50 hour total required on the log sheet.


The person(s) who signed the DR 2460 may also allow any person 21 years of age or older who holds a valid license to supervise you while you are driving, but that drive time does not count toward the 50 required hours.
