Out-of-State Transfer - Adult
- You may transfer your valid, out-of-state driver license to Colorado.
- 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, to waive the written exam and drive skills tests, you may provide a motor vehicle record from your previous state of residence. But you are still required to meet identity requirements.
- Motor Vehicle Record must:
- be printed within the last 30 days, and
- indicate valid driving privilege or privilege expired less than one year
When visiting a driver license office, please bring the following (please see the application checklist for more information):
- Your valid, or expired less than one year, out of state driver license.
- The required identification documents
NOTE: Acceptance of a birth certificate is dependent on the certifying authority, which certifies the document by its seal. Birth certificates must have a seal from a state or county, not a city.
- If you are younger than 21, an Affidavit of Identity (DR2304) must be signed by your parent/legal guardian in front of a driver license employee or notary if you do not have any identity documents.
- Applicable fee
Please note - if you have previously held a Colorado license and have had a name change, you will need to bring name change documents.
