Bilingual Website Launches to Help New Colorado Immigrant Drivers

7/16/2014

Denver – Today, the Licencias Para Todos Colorado website will launch. This bilingual website is a one-stop shop for Coloradan immigrants who are now eligible to obtain driver’s licenses, instruction permits and identification cards under a state law passed in 2013.  The website, www.licenciasparatodoscolorado.com, is a collaboration between the ACLU of Colorado, The Meyer Law Office, Licencias Para Todos, ProgressNow Colorado, and the Colorado Latino Forum.

The website is available in English and Spanish at www.licenciasparatodoscolorado.com. The goal of this website is to give the applicants the information they need to navigate the process as efficiently as possible.

“Up to this point, there has been a lot of confusion around the process, and that is why we are working with the Department of Revenue on finding ways to better communicate with the public. The website will serve as a fountain of information for the community ” said Denise Maes, Public Policy Director, ACLU of Colorado.

The website lists out detailed information for applicants including all acceptable documents, phone numbers, and a guide of what steps to follow depending on their circumstances.

“There are a lot of nuances in this law, and we want to make sure that when applicants attend their appointment to obtain their license, that they are prepared with all of the necessary documents. We don’t want individuals turned away because of misinformation,” said Julie Gonzales, Firm Manager, The Meyer Law Office.

www.licenciasparatodoscolorado.com is not affiliated with the Colorado Department of Revenue, and is sponsored by the ACLU of Colorado, The Meyer Law Office, ProgressNow Colorado, Licencias Para Todos and The Colorado Latino Forum.
