The first, is the scheduling web site used by DMV for the initial licensing appointment; click HERE.

The second is a flow chart, the left half of which is quite important and explains what is required for the initial appointment for anyone that cannot prove legal presence in the state.

The flow chart is HERE.  The form is in Adobe format, so you will need a free Adobe Reader to access it.

The Department of Revenue requires several forms of identification and proof of presence within the state.

a) documents dated within 90 days, 10-14 months, and 24-28 months from the appointment, to demonstrate continuous residency.

b) these documents can be a utility bill, credit card statement, pay stub or earnings statement, rent receipt, telephone bill, or bank statement, but must contain the name, address, and date of document.

c) documented ITIN number.

d) a translated identification document from the home country, such as a passport, consular identification card, or military I.D.  This must be translated to English, and must contain the full legal name of the applicant, date of birth, date the document was issued, and name of country, along with a full facial photograph.  This document can be expired for as much as ten years.

e) proof of a tax filing for Colorado for the previous year (2013, at this time).
