Plaza Voices: Important Update on Driver's Licenses and IDs under SB-251

Senate Bill 13-251, The Colorado Road and Community Safety Act, authorizes driver's licenses, instruction permits, or identification cards to be issued to individuals who are either unable to demonstrate lawful presence in the U.S., or can demonstrate only temporary lawful presence.

As of January 23, 2015, the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles is not accepting new appointments for applicants under SB-251, according to their website.

Interested applicants can still use that website to access information and forms related to SB-251, and should check there for updates as they become available.

The Denver Public Library will be holding free information sessions on this law and on recent executive actions affecting immigration. 

Plazas are a dedicated space for migrants from all over the world to connect with people, information, and resources, building Denver’s successful global community. This program engages newcomers of all ages and backgrounds with free opportunities and specialized support as they gain second-language conversation skills, prepare for citizenship, create new networks in business, and exchange perspectives across the immigrant experience.

To find a Plaza program near you, please see our events calendar.
