Important Information
About Your Permit
  • Your permit is valid for 3 years
  • You must log 50 hours of supervised driving time before you can apply for your driver license.
  • The Driver's Education Permit and Driver Awareness Permit only allows the individual who signed the DR2460 and/or the Driver's Ed Instructor to record the required 50 hours on the specified driving log.
  • If the individual whose signature is on the DR2460 is not in possession of a valid CO license, they can designate an Alternate Permit Supervisor. This person MUST be 21 years or older, and have a valid Colorado driver's license. The time spent driving with the Alternate Supervisor can be used to fulfill the 50-hour requirement on the log sheet.
  • It is permissible for the signer of the DR2460 to let anyone who is at least 21 years old, and has a valid Driver's License, to oversee the minor's behind-the-wheel training. However, that drive time cannot be used to fulfill the required 50 hours.
  • You must hold your permit for one year before you can apply for your driver license.
