How do you replace or renew a learners permit in Colorado? Colorado

Colorado requires all drivers license applicants, regardless of age, to hold permit before applying for a full license; therefore, it’s important to renew or replace your permit as soon as possible.

Renew a CO Drivers Permit

A Colorado driving permit is valid for three years. If you need to renew your permit, visit any DMV office and:

  1. Present your old learners permit.
  2. Pass a vision test.
  3. Be prepared to be fingerprinted and photographed.
  4. Have cash or a check or money order to pay the $14 drivers permit fee.
You will have to pass the written test again if your permit has been expired for longer than one year or if it has been revoked, suspended, or denied. If this applies to you, you'll need to obtain a Colorado drivers manual in order to study for the test. You can snatch a hardcopy from any DMV office or you can download one from the DMV website.

After studying the manual you can gauge your test-readiness by taking at least one practice permit test. These exams can be found online from a multitude number of test sites. All questions are similar to those found on the actual exam.

Replace a CO Driving Permit

If your drivers permit goes missing or gets accidentally destroyed you'll need to apply for a duplicate permit. The process is easy, requiring a visit to any Colorado DMV office with:

  • Proper identification (visit the DMV website for a list of acceptable identification).  
  • Cash or a check or money order to pay the $14 duplicate fee.
