A: While Colorado may lift restrictions on someone's driver's license for failing to register their vehicle, failing to pay traffic related fines, and certain criminal offenses, your driver's license can still be suspended for failing to pay child support. This is pursuant to C.R.S. § 42-2-127.5. Authority to suspend license - violation of child support order. More specifically, the DMV can suspend someone's license upon receipt of a notice of failure to comply from the state child support enforcement agency pursuant to section 26-13-123(4), C.R.S. In order to have your license reinstated, you would have to provide the department with proof of compliance with the child support order.
