Disability Identifier on License or ID

House Bill 21-1014, the Disability Symbol Identification Document Act, allows Coloradans who might not be able to effectively communicate with first responders due to a cognitive, neurological, mental health, sensory needs, chronic illness, chronic pain and/or physical disability to add a disability symbol identifier to their driver license or identification card.   A person may remove the symbol at any time after the addition. The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) began allowing those eligible to add the disability symbol identifier to their driver license or identification on July 1, 2022.

Interested Coloradans must bring an Application for Disability Identifier Symbol, completed by a health care provider, to a state driver license office (appointment needed).  The “i” symbol from the Invisible Disabilities Association is the symbol that will be printed on the driver license or ID card.  

The symbol is placed on the front of a driver license or identification card to the lower right of the photograph. See samples of the identifier on the divisions website under the frequently asked questions, number five.

The effective date for bills enacted without a safety clause is August 7, 2024, if the General Assembly adjourns sine die on May 8, 2024, unless otherwise specified. Details
