New Rule for Driver's License Applicants

Anyone who applies for a driver's license or state ID card and doesn't get one will be given a written reason starting Tuesday. The change is one of the consequences of a district judge's ruling last month. The other is a hearing scheduled in March to come up with new rules for issuing driver's licenses.

Advocates for the homeless had filed suit saying a rule requiring two pieces of identification to get a driver's license or a state I-D was unfair.
Denver District Judge Larry Naves agreed and overturned the rule. He also ordered the state to give a written reason for any rejections.
Michael Cooke, the former director of the state Revenue Department which oversees driver's licenses scheduled a hearing on March 5th for new rules on getting licenses.

There's no word yet on whether the new revenue director will stick with that hearing date.
