DENVER (AP) — Colorado is again taking appointments to test drivers for licenses regardless of their immigration status.
The resumption of appointments will begin next Tuesday, with tests to begin June 1. The state Department of Motor Vehicles made the announcement Wednesday after getting a compromise level of funding to do the tests.
The agency initially asked for $166,000 to keep open five offices that handle the licenses, and potentially expand the program. Lawmakers readjusted the request to $66,000, allowing for three offices to be open.
The offices are in Colorado Springs, Denver and Grand Junction.
State officials had only one such office available to immigrants since February because lawmakers were gridlocked on the funding request.
