CO State ID or Driver's License

The Colorado Department of Revenue runs the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV)—where you apply for a state ID or driver’s license. In order to get a Colorado driver’s license or state ID, you need to be able to prove four things:

Your legal name
Your age
Your identity
Whether you’re legally in the US

Sometimes one document can prove all four, such as a CO driver’s license or Colorado state ID that’s expired less than ten years (with your picture on it).
You may also be able to use several documents for proof, such as a CDOC ID card and your birth certificate and Social Security card if the first and last names and date of birth match on both documents.

Good to Know !

By state law, you may be able to get a free ID with a letter of referral. The letter can come from the CDOC (parole officer or re-entry specialist), a county jail, or a department of human services office where you’ve applied for social services.
