This is specifically if you have a US driver's license from another state and want to change it to Colorado driver license.

  • If you are under the age of 21, an Affidavit of Identity (DR2304) must be signed by your parent/legal guardian in front of a driver license employee or notary if you do not have any identity documents. An Affidavit of Liability or Guardianship (DR2460) is also required if you are transferring a driver license.
