Appointment based in-person services are available in our Lakewood and Colorado Springs Offices. To support our efforts to deliver exceptional customer service and timely processing of applications, in-person services will be available by appointment only. We are not accepting walk-in requests at this time. The following information further details the scope of MED licensing services available to our customers.
In-Person Services - Appointment Only

Schedule an appointment. This tool will allow you to choose your appointment type and the closest office to you. You may choose to have your fingerprints taken during your in-person appointment ONLY. The cost of having fingerprints taken at the MED will be an additional $39.50. Payments can be made by check, money order, and credit/debit cards. No cash will be accepted. For licensing fees, here is the most recent fee schedule.
If you submitted an application while the MED offices were closed during the COVID-19 pandemic and have “See ID” on your badge, but you would like a badge with your photo, you are now able to schedule an appointment for a replacement badge and pay the duplicate identification badge fee.
Other Methods to Submit Applications to the MED
The MED has prioritized expanding options for online submission of applications using your computer, phone, or another device with internet access. It's fast and easy to submit your application online. Our training video will help guide you through the process.
The MED will continue to accept application submissions online, by USPS mail and drop off (drop off services are available at the Lakewood office only). The Lakewood office’s Drop Box is now located in the lobby and is only available from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Please place your complete applications in an envelope to keep the application intact.
Please do not submit multiple of the same application[s] as this may complicate the application process and significantly delay your application processing time. For example, please do not submit an application online and make an in-person appointment.
Third-Party Fingerprint Services
Customers submitting their application online, through the mail and via drop-off MUST use third-party fingerprint providers. Customers can visit our website to find information on the available third-party fingerprint service providers.
If you are submitting your application online, via USPS or dropping off your application, please have your fingerprints done AFTER submitting your application (preferably within 7 days of submission). You may make an appointment ahead of time utilizing the appointment scheduling link, however, you must submit your application PRIOR TO being fingerprinted by a third party.
Issuance of Licensing Badge
When the MED is prepared to issue your owner or employee license (badge), it will be mailed to the address listed on your application - you cannot pick up your badge.
We’re excited to resume in-person services and look forward to serving you!
