No. You do not have to take or pass a drug test to be able to apply or receive an CO Driver's License.
There are a few reasons, test takers fail their CO Permit Test. A test taker who fails may not have studied thoroughly. Or he or she may have been nervous, anxious and/or distracted on the day of the test. If you fail your CO Permit Test, you will not receive your CO Learner's Permit, and you will need to retake the exam. You are able to do so as early as the next business day, but do not rush retaking the exam. Take your time before you retake. Read the entire CO Driver's Manual again and answer test questions on our website so that the next time you take the exam you have the best chance of passing the CO Permit Test.
If you pass your CO Permit Test, you will receive your CO Learner's Permit. If you are 16 or younger, you will only be able to drive with the person who signed your Affidavit of Liability and Guardianship. If you are older than 16, you can drive with a licensed driver who is 21 years old or older.
To give yourself the best chance of passing your CO Permit Test you should study all chapters and sections of the CO Driver's Manual. The exam will test your knowledge of speed limits, alcohol and drug laws, right-of way laws, pavement markings, aggressive driving behavior, entering and exiting the expressway and many more basic rules of the road.
The CO Permit Test consists of 25 multiple choice questions.
You will need to answer 80% of the questions correctly in order to pass.
No. You are not allowed to use your CO Driver's Manual or any other study materials while you take your CO Permit Test.
If you are under 18, your parent or legal guardian should accompany you to your OR Permit Test as they will need to sign an Affidavit of Liability and Guardianship. In some instances, the Colorado Motor Vehicle office may make an exemption for you. You should contact your local Motor Vehicle office to see if there are other options available to you.
In CO, the minimum age requirement to begin the licensing process is 15 years old. If you plan to apply at this age, you will need to be enrolled in a state-approved driver's education program and have an Affidavit of Completion of a Driver Education Course.
When you apply for your CO, you need to submit documents that prove your identity and your residency in the state of Colorado.
