How Minnesotans can help reduce the spread of COVID-19

  • Don’t rush to an office right away if you don’t need to. 
    • Early renewals to upgrade to a Minnesota REAL ID or enhanced driver’s license or ID card should not be done at this time. The REAL ID deadline is extended to Oct. 1, 2021. 
    • DVS offers a number of online services. Visit to find out if you can complete your transaction online before you visit offices. 
    • If your license expired during the peacetime emergency, you have until two months after the month the peacetime emergency ends to renew.
    • DPS-DVS will automatically extend the expiration to January 31st for any driver’s license, ID card or permit that would have expired between March 13 and Dec. 31. If the COVID-19 peacetime emergency is extended past Nov. 12, the extension will also be extended. 

      This extension is for any valid driver’s license, instruction permit (including commercial learner’s permits), provisional license, operator’s permit, limited license and farm work license.

      This includes valid out-state driver’s licenses, ID cards and permits

    • Come prepared. 
  • Show up for your appointment or cancel with as much notice as possible if you need to. Cancelling ahead of time allows us to open that appointment to another person who needs it.

 REAL ID Update:

Federal REAL ID Enforcement Deadline Extended to Oct. 1, 2021

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending the REAL ID full enforcement deadline to Oct. 1, 2021.

The deadline was originally set for Oct. 1, 2020, but is being delayed by one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 Minnesotans are encouraged to use the online pre-application tool before they visit their local driver’s license office to ensure they have the required documents.

Every air traveler 18 years of age or older will need a REAL ID, enhanced driver’s license or ID, passport or passport card or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States or enter federal facilities beginning Oct. 1, 2021. A standard Minnesota driver’s license will not be accepted for federal use as of that date, but it will still be a valid form of identification and valid for lawful driving privileges.

New Driver’s License System Offers Pre-Application Feature

A  pre-application feature will allow Minnesotans to enter a significant portion of their driver’s license or ID card application online – including REAL ID applications - reducing the time spent in driver’s license offices.
