Colorado Measure SB139 seeks more offices for migrants’ driver’s licenses

The Division of Motor Vehicles would increase the number of sites where temporary and illegal residents can go to get a valid driver’s license under a bill that won preliminary approval in the Colorado House on Wednesday.

Under current law, there already are three DMV offices in Colorado where such people can get licenses: Grand Junction, Lakewood and Colorado Springs. To do so, applicants must first provide proof of their names, identity, date of birth and residency in the state.

The measure, SB139, would add five more offices around the state. Though it hasn’t yet been determined exactly where, additional offices could be located in Montrose and Glenwood Springs.
