Proof of lawful presence no longer necessary to drive

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Starting Aug. 1, people who don't have proof of lawful presence in the United States will be able to apply for a driver's license in Colorado.

More than 1,600 people have made appointments already at the Grand Junction Department of Motor Vehicle office for after Aug. 1.

Due to the Colorado Road and Community Safety Act, applicants only have to show proof of name, date of birth and Colorado residency when applying for a driver's license.

Appointments are being booked out into October at the Grand Junction DMV. They can be made online or by phone with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
