How To Renew Your Minnesota Drivers License

Do you need to renew your drivers license in Minnesota? We've collected useful and up-to-date information to help save you time when renewing your drivers license. Select from the options below to get started. 

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many DVS related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DVS in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DVS.

3: Via a DVS office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local DVS office. Varying DVS offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DVS closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your DVS allows you to make a personal appointment.
