Colorado DRIVES

Colorado DRIVES logo

The Colorado Department of Revenue and Governor's Office of Information Technology received funding during the 2014 and 2015 legislative sessions to replace the outdated Driver License System (DLS) and Colorado State Titling and Registration System (CSTARS). This project is called the Colorado Driver License, Record, Identification and Vehicle Enterprise Solution (Colorado DRIVES). The primary goal of this project is to provide a flexible, reliable, accurate and integrated solution for driver and vehicle services, as well as business licensing and revenue accounting.

This project is the cornerstone of the DMV Strategic Plan initiative to improve customer service and meet the Governor’s goal of reducing wait times in state driver license offices. 

When implemented, Colorado DRIVES will provide:

  • State and county DMV employees a modern and user-friendly system that reduces customer service time 
  • Increased system reliability that significantly reduces outages and downtime in  driver license offices across the state
  • Residents access to information to better prepare them for their office visit as well as improved online services 

Notice: Title and registration services will be unavailable August 1-5, 2018. State driver license offices will be closed August 2-3, 2018. Online vehicle registration renewal and kiosk registration renewal in participating counties will remain available throughout this time.
