Extension for MN Residents to Renew Driver’s Licenses to End March 31st

Time is up for Minnesota residents who have been granted extensions to renew their driver’s licenses and state identification cards due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Credentials that would have expired over the past year, but remained valid as a result of legislation signed by Gov. Tim Walz last year, must be renewed by March 31st.


DVS has begun sending letters to about 300,000 residents who have standard driver’s licenses or identification cards expiring between March 13th, 2020 and February 28th, 2021 and still need to renew.


Additionally, drivers and ID card holders with an expiration date of March 1st, 2021 or later must renew by their due date.  The deadline for holders of commercial driver’s licenses to renew is February 28th.


Those who fail to complete the task on time will lose their driving privileges until they renew.
