Bridges Bill Brings DMV Into This Century

(Feb. 23) – Rep. Jeff Bridges’ bill to streamline the state’s motor vehicle registration operation earned final approval from the House this morning with a 53-12 vote.

“This bill will make a trip to DMV less painful, whether online or at offices across the state,” Rep. Bridges said. “And, hopefully, lead to happier driver’s license photos.”

HB17-1107, also sponsored by Rep. Dan Thurlow, R-Grand Junction, allows the Division of Motor Vehicles to move from an antiquated, 1980s-era software program for managing titles and registrations to a modern system. According to DMV officials, this will contribute to faster service, shorter wait times and more online options.

The bill now heads to the Senate.
