LAKEWOOD, Colo. (KKCO) – The Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles announced Tuesday that aspiring Colorado drivers can now take their driving knowledge test online.

Commonly referred to as a written test or license test, the exam is most Coloradan’s first step toward becoming licensed and driving independently.

Aside from a $5 test fee and a $1.50 credit card processing fee, at-home tests cost the same as in-person driving tests, which are free on the first attempt.

The new service will give Coloradans the ability to test an online instruction license wherever and whenever they want, without an appointment as long as they have an internet connection and a working webcam.

Previously, new drivers had to schedule a visit to a state driver’s license office or go through a driving school to take their license exam, but this is no longer required. In-person services will still be available.

Any Coloradan of age to take the test for an instruction permit can take the test at home by completing a pre-registration on the DMV website.

Drivers under 19 will need someone 19 or older to register as an exam proxy. The candidate and the proxy will receive the test results.
