APPLICATION DATES AND DEADLINES

Online Applications

The Department shall begin accepting applications at 8:00 a.m. on the specified date listed in the application deadline charts below.

 

Online applications must be completed and submitted by midnight mountain time on the deadline date. Effective January 1, 2019 all applications, licenses and permits paid for with a credit card will incur a credit card processing fee.  Fees must be paid in full by Visa, MasterCard or Discover when the application is submitted. Unsuccessful applicants will no longer receive refund warrants, but will instead have a credit applied back to the credit card that was used for the submission of the online application.  To assist in the refund process, please ensure that the credit card used has an expiration date valid through the time period in which the drawing will be conducted.  The Department will issue refund warrants in all circumstances when the credit card is no longer valid for processing a credit back to the credit card. 

 

Customers who need assistance submitting their applications online may go to a Department Regional Office or the Cheyenne Headquarters Office to use a computer at the kiosk station and receive personal assistance from Department personnel.
