We’ve received some good news from the State of Colorado. We have been given the green light to resume Behind the Wheel lessons and administration of tests, written and drive, will resume on Monday, May 4th.
I want to thank you for your patience during this time of closure.  We will make every effort to get to all our valuable students in a timely manner. We have been closed for 30 days so it will take us a while (possibly 3-4 weeks)  to get caught back up with scheduling and testing priorities. We will do our best to fit everyone’ schedules and requests where possible.
Scheduling of Behind-the-Wheel/Testing appointments will be determined by:
  1. Backlogged students that were eligible for license or permit in March and April.
  2. Students with prior to closure appointments and eligibility in May.
  3. Students on ‘BTW Driving Wait List’
THE DMV OFFICE TO OBTAIN PERMIT/LICENSE WILL BE OPEN ON MONDAY, MAY 11TH, BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. APPOINTMENTS CAN BE BOOKED BY CALLING ​303-205-5613, option 4.
 
Thank  you, again, for your patience and patronage.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teen in the U.S, according to the Center for Disease Control. A recent study by the University of Nebraska followed 150,000 teen drivers over an eight-year period and found that, “young drivers who have not completed driver’s education are 75 percent more likely to get a traffic ticket, 24 percent more likely to be involved in a fatal or injury accident and 16 percent more likely to have an accident”.
