Out-of-State Transfer - Adult
You may transfer your valid, out-of-state driver license to Colorado. It will be used for identification purposes and to waive testing requirements. Per Colorado Revised Statute 24-60-1106, the license you previously held will be voided (it will be marked with a single hole punch in the upper right corner). If you do not have your out-of-state driver license, you may provide a motor vehicle record from your previous state of residence to waive the written exam and drive skills tests, but you are still required to meet identity requirements.
