My driver's license or ID card expires after the COVID-19 peacetime emergency ends; do I have an extension to renew?


Yes. Gov. Walz signed two bills into law that extend the expiration dates of driver’s licenses, ID cards and permits that expire during and the month after the COVID-19 peacetime emergency ends to two months after the peacetime emergency ends.

 

What that means:

  • DPS-DVS will automatically extend the expiration to Nov. 30 for any driver’s license, ID card or permit that would have expired between March 13 and Oct. 31. If the COVID-19 peacetime emergency is extended past Sept. 11, the extension will also be extended. 
  • Minnesotans will not receive a new credential, but their record will reflect the new expiration date.

What’s included:

  • 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.
