RBC | If you need to renew your license plates or renew your driver’s license, do it before the end of July. All Colorado title and registration services will be unavailable Aug. 1-5, and all driver’s license services will be unavailable Aug. 2-3.

The closure will allow the state of Colorado to update the computer system, which was originally installed between 1983 and 1986, with a new system which will improve processing and add additional online services.

“We are excited to introduce the DRIVES system into both driver license and motor vehicle offices in Colorado,” said Department of Revenue Executive Director Michael Hartman in a press release. “This new system offers a 35-year leap in technology, which will allow for a faster customer experience with several additional online service options.”
