I will be moving to Colorado next week, and just renewed my driver's license in my home State, how long before I need to get a Colorado license and license plates?


The State of Colorado states residency would include:

  • Own or operate a business in Colorado
  • Gainfully employed in Colorado
  • have resided in Colorado for 90 consecutive days


As a new resident, the State of Colorado says you need to apply for a new driver's license within 30 days and 90 days to register your vehicle.  This should give you enough time to get settled before doing these tasks.


* Exemption - Active U.S. military families who claim another State as home are exempt from these rules.


For more information on applying for new license plates or a new driver's license - visit the State of Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles.   Click on the tab - New to Colorado for this information.
