Driver’s License Linked to Registration? Yes, must be registered to receive license, permit, or identification card.

Registration Linked to Access to Higher Education? No, HB23-1261, signed into law May 16, 2023, overturned the requirement that one must be registered in order to enroll in a state funded institution of higher education.

Registration Required for State Employment? No.

HB01-1284 stipulates that any male between 18 and 26 who applies for a driver’s license, learning permit, or identification card, will be registered with the SSS.  Submission of the application provides consent for information to be sent to the SSS; however, the department must inform the applicant that this is the case.  This bill amended Colorado Statutes 42-2-107, 42-2-302, and 42-2-403. HB23-126, signed into law on May 16, 2023, removes the requirement in Colorado Statute 23-5-118 that had required males between the ages of 18 and 26 be registered before enrolling in a state institution of higher education.
