Investigation Hold

An investigation hold may be placed on any driver or motor vehicle record when the Department has reason to believe information within the record is incorrect or fraudulent. 

The Department has the authority to revoke, suspend, cancel or deny the reissuance of any driver's or minor driver's license upon determining that the licensee was not entitled to the issuance thereof for any of the following reasons:

  •  Failure to give the required or correct information in an application, or commission of any fraud in making such application or in submitting any proof allowed under this section;
  •  Inability to operate a motor vehicle because of physical or mental incompetence;
  •  Permission of an unlawful or fraudulent use or conviction of misuse of license, titles, permits, or license plates;
  •  That such license would have been subject to denial under the provisions of section 42-2-104 ;
  •  Failure of the licensee to register in Colorado all vehicles owned by the licensee under the requirements of section 42-3-103
