In Colorado, the basic written exam will test your knowledge of Colorado road rules and safe driving techniques. Once you have your learner's permit or driver's license, the CO DMV will not require you to take the written test again unless:
- Your driver's license has been expired for more than 1 year.
- Your license was suspended due to receiving a traffic ticket.
- You're applying for a different class of driver's license or adding an endorsement.
- Your driver's license was canceled, revoked, or denied.
