The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will begin piloting a new design for driver licenses, instruction permits and identification cards at three offices beginning March 1. The Littleton, Aurora and Frisco state driver license offices will pilot the program, beginning with the Littleton office on March 1. Aurora and Frisco will follow over the next few weeks. In order to prepare for the beginning of the pilot, the three offices will be closed one day prior to their pilot launch. Closure information will be posted on the DMV website and at each office.

Colorado residents should continue to use their valid driver licenses, instruction permits and identification cards with the current design through their expiration date. There is no need to renew until the current card expires. The current design will continue to be issued at all other offices and online until the Customers obtaining a newly designed card at a pilot office will receive a temporary paper document that will contain a removable section with an image that resembles the card. The temporary document will be valid for 30 days to allow for the physical card to be produced and mailed.

The new design features a more colorful background showcasing Mount Sneffels located between Ouray and Telluride. The card also includes laser engraving of the customer’s information and primary photograph in grayscale to enhance the security and safety of the document.
