The state of Colorado has decided to put one more obstacle between you and the completion of your business at the Division of Motor Vehicles: They’re moving it.

Starting April 3, the Denver Central Driver License Office will be at 3265 S. Wadsworth Blvd., Lakewood.

The current location is 1865 W. Mississippi Ave., Denver, which will remain open through this Friday, March 31. There also will still be a license office at 4685 Peoria Street in Northeast Denver.

And, to be clear, they’re not just doing this to annoy you; the lease on the current place had expired. The new, larger location will allow for expanded services, according to the state. There will be free parking, and it’s accessible from the 30, 76 and 87L bus lines.

Services at the new location include new licenses, permits and ID cards; renewals; driving records; tests for CDLs; appointments for undocumented immigrants to get identification; reinstatements; and something called remote exceptions processing.

Also, to be doubly clear, you still can’t get your license plates at the license office. If you just moved here, you’ll first have to visit a title and registration office, like the one at 2855 Tremont Street. (A full list of locations is available here.)

Or, if you’re just renewing your stuff or doing other simple tasks, you may be able to go online.

Correction: This article earlier mentioned the 78 bus line, based on information from a news release. There is no 78 bus line. It’s the 76.
