How to Get a Colorado Driver’s License if You Are Over 18?
Most teens are eager to get their learner’s permits at age 15 and their licenses as soon as they turn 16. However, there are many reasons why someone might wait until they are over 18 to begin the driver’s licensing process. The procedure in Colorado works a little differently depending on when you choose to begin.
New CO Driver’s License (under 18)
Like many other states, Colorado employs a graduated licensing program for drivers under 18. This program imposes extra restrictions on young drivers, which are gradually removed as they get older and demonstrate consistent competence behind the wheel. Teens under 16 have to complete a Colorado Driver’s Ed Course before they can take the Colorado learner’s permit test. After getting their permit, they will have to log at least 50 hours of supervised driving and wait at least 12 months before taking the driver’s license exam. For the first 2 years of having their license, they will have restrictions on the number of passengers they can carry and the hours at night they are allowed to drive.
