State residents encouraged to renew licenses online
Colorado residents who renew their driver’s licenses or identification cards online will now receive a newly designed card.
Renewing online allows customers to avoid visiting a Department of Motor Vehicle office. It also offers individuals the opportunity to update their current physical and mailing addresses.
Individuals may renew their driver license up to two consecutive times online. The most recent photo on file with the DMV is used when renewing online.
Last year, only 29 percent of eligible residents took advantage of the online renewal option. Individuals are encouraged to renew online for their convenience.
Colorado unveiled the new driver’s license and identification card at three pilot offices in March. All driver license offices across the state are issuing the new design.
