Colorado Drivers Education
Colorado drivers education is an essential first step to life long driving skills. Driving is one of the first major responsibilities in a teens life. Driver education assures a student understands basic traffic laws, rules of the road, basic motor vehicle operation, driver awareness and drug and alcohol effects on driving.
The Colorado driver education course is an interactive course that comes with three CD Roms for use on your home computer. Two of the CD Roms are for the teen student and one disk contains special information, including lesson plan print-outs for behind the wheel training, for the parent. The drivers ed course consists of ten sections that make up 32 hours of computer based instruction along with 14 hours of behind the wheel driver training. In addition, the Colorado drivers education course covers beneficial information about drug and alcohol abuse.

Obtain Instruction Permit
- A minor may obtain the permit at age 15 ONLY if the minor is enrolled in an approved driver education course such as Virtual Drive of America®.
- Expires 3 years from the date of issue.
- Must hold the permit for a minimum of 12 months before applying for a driver license.
- Must present a completed Affidavit of Liability and Guardianship (-DR2460-)
- May drive only with the driver ed instructor or the person(s) who signed the DR2460 until the age of 16. This restriction is automatically lifted when the minor reaches 16. May then drive with any licensed driver 21 years of age or older.
Understand Colorado's Graduated Driver's License (GDL) Law
Beginning July 1, 2005, regardless of when you got your license, if you are under 18 you cannot drive a vehicle carrying a passenger under 21 unless you have held your driver license for at least 6 months. And, you cannot drive a vehicle carrying more than one passenger under 21 unless you have held your driver license for at least one year.
Exceptions to carrying passengers:
- If your parent or guardian is in the car with you, or
- If there is an adult passenger in the vehicle, 21 years of age or older, who has a valid license and has held a driver license for at least one year or
- If the passenger under 21 needs emergency medical assistance, or
- If the passengers under 21 are members of your immediate family and they are all wearing seatbelts.
So, if you were issued your license on January 1, 2005, on July 1, 2005, you would be able to carry only one passenger under 21 but no more than one until January 1, 2006, unless you meet one of the exceptions above.
There are also new restrictions on the time of day that you can drive. If you are under 18 you cannot drive between the hours of 12 midnight and 5 a.m. unless you have held your driver license for at least one year
- unless your parent or guardian is in the car with you, or
- unless there is an adult passenger, 21 years of age or older, in the vehicle who has a valid license and has held a driver license for at least one year, or
- unless you are driving to school or a school-authorized activity and the school doesn't provide transportation. You will need a signed statement from the school official showing the date of the activity, or
- unless you are driving because of employment; you must carry a signed statement from your employer verifying your employment, or
- unless you are driving because of an emergency, or
- unless you are an emancipated minor but your parent(s) or guardian(s) have not canceled your license.
