What is the penalty for allowing someone without a license to drive your car in Colorado?

It is against the law in Colorado to knowingly:

  • Permit your underage child to drive without a currently valid minor driver's license or instruction permit, or
  • Allow someone who does not possess a currently valid driver's license, minor driver's license or instruction permit to drive your vehicle.

Violation of 42-2-139 or 42-2-140 C.R.S. is not a crime. It is a Colorado class B infraction, punishable by a $15-$100 fine.
