On August 6, 2018, all Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) systems that control vehicle and vehicle-related information will be replaced with a new system called Colorado Driver License, Record, Identification and Vehicle Enterprise Solution (DRIVES). You are being contacted because our records indicate that your organization currently accesses this data. If your organization would like to continue to access this data, you will need to
complete the End User License Agreement (EULA) requesting access to DRIVES.
This EULA must be uploaded along with registration at https://dmvpartner.colorado.gov?link=3paRegistration with passcode of MVPrecords as soon as possible. If you have any changes to this information prior to account creation please log in to https://dmvpartner.colorado.gov?link=3paUpdate or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If this information is not submitted, your organization will no longer have access DMV systems effective August 6, 2018.
Once the EULA is submitted, you will receive additional information regarding training on the new DRIVES system. Training materials are available below
If you have additional questions, please email email@example.com.
What is DRIVES?
You have received several communications about the Division of Motor Vehicles’ switch to a new computer system, DRIVES, on August 6, 2018.
To prepare you for this new system, Computer Based Training (CBT) is now available! This training will provide an opportunity for you to learn how to use the DRIVES system!

Pursuant to HB16-1056, tow carriers who complete title searches via DRIVES system, in person or via mail, for private and public tows, who receive a “No Record Found” will have to complete a national database search either in person or through the DRIVES system for vehicles towed on or after January 1, 2017.
For more information on this change, see the memo issued August 5, 2016 and the training PowerPoint.
