Colorado Teen Driving

Welcome to The Driver's Seat!

CDOT and the Teen Driving Alliance are committed to keeping our teens safe, and working toward reducing crashes and fatalities in Colorado. The Driver's Seat campaign encourages teen driving safety by providing valuable resources for parents, teens, schools and other safety advocates.


When your teen enters his/her driving years, it can generate a mix of excitement and worry for you both. The more you know about the licensing process and teen driving laws in Colorado, and the more you communicate about the responsibilities that come with driving, the better prepared you both will be.
