- A sticker is issued to extend the expiration date of a license if a person is out of state/country or who are temporarily unable to apply in person due to physical impairment when their license expires.
- A civilian extension is valid for one year from the expiration date and can only be issued once unless the person is out of the country. If out of country, a second extension may be issued with a separate request made within 90 days of expiration of the first extension.
- Colorado residents on active-duty military are eligible for an automatic three-year extension. If military personnel decide to apply for the extension sticker, the extension is free but the application must include a letter from your commanding officer stating that you are active duty military and currently stationed outside the state of Colorado or a copy of your military orders that state that you are stationed outside of Colorado. Requests for military extensions may be faxed to 303-205-5990.
