Driver's License Renewal Date Extended By Governor

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz announced this afternoon (June 12) that he was extending the Peacetime Emergency Declaration he put in place March 13. The Peacetime Emergency Declaration was scheduled to expire June 13, but has been through July 13.

Legislation extended the expiration date for a driver’s license, instruction permit, provisional license, state-issued ID card and disability parking certificate. Any license/ID/permit that is set to expire between March 13 and Aug. 31 now has until Sept. 30 for renewals under this extension.

If your license/ID/permit expired before March 13, you can still get a renewal, but it may affect your ability to use that expired credential to apply for REAL ID or an enhanced driver’s license. However, there are other address-related proof documents needed to obtain both REAL ID and enhanced credentials that can be used to satisfy the requirements other than a driver’s license or ID card.
