County moves to appointments for driver’s license and ID services

The Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder’s Office will move to appointments only for all driver’s licenses, ID cards and driving records beginning June 1. These services will no longer be available on a walk-in basis. Appointments may be scheduled online at

Arapahoe is one of only two metro-area counties that offer limited driver’s license and ID card services on behalf of the State. The change to appointments will help the County better manage demand for these services, while fulfilling its statutory duty to process motor vehicle titles and registrations for County residents. The appointment system also will reduce wait times for motor vehicle transactions by freeing up more employees during periods when the Clerk’s offices are typically busiest.

Appointments will be available Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) at the Clerk and Recorder’s Littleton Branch (5334 S. Prince Street, Littleton) and Centennial Branch (6954 S. Lima Street, Centennial). Available appointments will include:

  • Driver’s License Renewal (includes name, address or gender changes or motorcycle endorsements);
  • Colorado ID Cards;
  • First-Time Driver’s License with proof of completed driving test; and
  • Motor Vehicle Driving Records.

A 20-minute timeslot is required for every person who needs a driver’s license renewal or ID card. A five-minute timeslot is required for every driving record.

Arapahoe County does not offer written or driving tests, Commercial Driver’s Licenses, restricted licenses, reinstatements, hearings, or replacement licenses for drivers under age 21. The County also cannot serve customers with immigration documents.

Individuals who need full services, walk-in availability or who hold immigration documents should visit a State Driver’s License office. The nearest locations are at County Line and Broadway in Littleton, and at Parker Road and Cottonwood Drive in Parker.

Arapahoe County processed 43,067 driver’s license and ID cards in 2016.
