Fblt Co License Bureau Office Manager Clears Up Confusion About the Driver’s License for All Initiative

The Driver’s License for All initiative that took effect on October 1st eliminates the need to show proof of legal presence in the United States to get a standard Minnesota Class D Driver’s License, Instruction Permit or Standard Identification (ID) card.

Faribault County License Bureau Office Manager Amy Wachlin says there’s been some confusion regarding the initiative as the person applying for a license still needs to bring their birth certificate and social security card and if they haven’t had a license before, take both the written and behind the wheel tests.

Wachlin says things are now easier for someone with an out of state to get a Minnesota License as well.  They just need to present their birth certificate and social security card.  They no longer need to take any tests to get their new Minnesota License.

Wachlin adds that it’s important to support your local License Bureau Office, as when you mail or renew your tabs online the state keeps all of the fees and the county doesn’t see any of that money.  You can however still mail your renewal to the Faribault County License Bureau Office.

If you have any questions regarding licenses and titles, you can call or stop into the License Bureau Office in the Ag Center in Blue Earth.
