It's now easier than ever to get a Colorado state ID that reflects who you are

Starting yesterday, transgender and non-binary Colorado residents will be more easily able to update the gender markers on state identification documents (IDs).

What do you need to know? 

Coloradans who don’t identify as male (M) or female (F) can update their drivers licenses, state identification cards, and driving permits with a gender neutral “X” designation, as determined by them and their licensed treating medical or behavioral healthcare provider. 

To update your gender marker, you and your provider must complete DR 2083 Change of Sex Designation form with a signature from your licensed medical or behavioral healthcare provider. This requirement does not require an individual to undergo any specific surgery, treatment, clinical care, or behavioral healthcare. 

It must be printed, signed, and submitted in person to your local Department of Motor Vehicles branch

Your provider can be licensed in Colorado or any other state. 

There is no additional fee to change the sex identifier, however, you will need to pay the standard fee to obtain a new card. 

More information can be found on Colorado Department of Revenue’s FAQ: Non-binary Sex Identifier on Driver Licenses and Identification Cards document.
