Driver License Office Closed Tuesday for Training
The Saguache County driver’s license office will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, April 12 for training, so please plan accordingly.
If you haven’t heard by now Colorado rolled out a new design for driver license and ID cards earlier this year and Tuesday’s closing of the local office will allow for staff training for the new changes from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
The Colorado DMV began issuing driver licenses, instruction permits and identification cards with new designs in 2016. The card design includes an entirely new format and enhanced features, including laser-engraved information in grayscale, as well as new card material.
Valid driver licenses, instruction permits and identification cards with the current design can be used until their expiration date. The current design will continue to be issued at all other offices.
Here is some additional information from the Saguache County Clerk’s Office which is the local agency that administers driver licenses and ID cards.
Fees: Drivers License renewal $25. Identification Card: $16.50
