Default Fishing License Renewal..

Well, attempted to renew My Co. Fishing license today for 2018... went to DICKS , as I have the last few years. The clerk tried for 10 mins and finally gave the CPW help desk a call, as He was having problems with the "system"
Turns out that if You have "renewed" Your Colorado Drivers License within the last 9 months... it's a NO GO at any of the retail licensing outlets...
The "NEWER" style drivers licenses.. ( the ones that look like cheap paper) do NOT "link up" with CPW's data bases. They cannot confirm Your "years of residency" in the State...
I was told I'd need to go to one of CPW's office locations...
So, I went out to the location on C 470 and Sante Fe and they had no problem renewing My license .. The Gal said it's a BIG glitch that CPW is working on....

Um...isn't that some ish!!! WTH. Hopefully that glitch gets fixed soon because I just renewed my license and it looks like a frickin' green card!!! I'm nowhere near C470 and Santa Fe.

Any CPW office can help you. And I thought they could do it over the phone.

I guess I can't see why they are having such a problem. Your DL number is the same as it has always been since you got one. So if you lived here 5 years ago and haven't moved anywhere you will still have the same DL number just like your CID number. Seems like the CPW could figure out a way to sync the 2.

Read the changes for 2018 in the book! If you've renewed your DL in the last 6 months, you must show proof of residency to the DOW. Not a brain buster

It is not in question as to the change... the discussion has been about WHY!
Maybe you should have taken your own advice and did a little reading before chiming in with a snarky comment.

It because some people are getting a Colorado DL and applying for tags before they are a resident. Perhaps you're the one who should read a little
