Colorado Learner's Permit

In Colorado, an Instructional Permit or Driver Education Permit is considered Stage 1 of the Colorado Graduated Driver License law. You must be 16 years of age to be issued your instructional permit unless:

  • You have completed and passed an approved driver education course; OR
  • You have completed a State-approved 4-hour driver awareness course

At the time that you apply for your driver's license you are required to submit a minimum of 50 hours of supervised behind-the-wheel practice, 10 of which must be night time driving. If you have completed the required course work, new drivers are eligible for an instructional permit at the age of 15 years and 6 months. At Stage 2, the new driver is eligible for their restricted driver's license where they will need to take their road skills test.

Colorado GDL Laws

In 1999, Colorado approved their Graduated Drivers License law that requires all new teen drivers to obtain their driver's licenses through a three-step process. This law is aimed to gradually introduce teen drivers into driving safely, reducing accidents that usually come with a new driver’s first year of driving.

Stage 1: Learner's Permit

A new driver must be at least 16 years old to apply for an instruction permit. A licensee between the ages of 14-16 may also apply for an instruction permit if they have undergone driver education classes, which consists of a classroom portion and a behind-the-wheel test. The licensee must hold the permit for a minimum of 12 months. During this period, the licensee must complete 50 hours of supervised driving - 10 of which should be at nighttime. If a licensee is under 18, they may not drive with anyone except their driving instructor, parent or legal guardian.

Stage 2: Restricted License

The minimum age for getting a restricted license is 16. The nighttime driving restriction applies for the hours between midnight and 5 AM. For the first 6 months, the licensee is not allowed to drive with passengers under the age of 21 years or older, with the exception of siblings.

Stage 3: Full Privilege License

When the licensee turns 18, restrictions are removed from their driver's license. This is the full privilege license in Colorado.

"I really did learn the road rules and road signs, so when I got to the DMV it was so much easier than I thought it would be. Every time I logged in I received random questions and it provided me the answers with an explanation. It certainly helped me!"
