The Wright County License Bureau will be opening 900 new appointments for driver’s license renewals tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 4). The appointments, which can be accessed on the front page of the Wright County website (www.co.wright.mn.us) by clicking the “Make an Appointment” tab on the left side of the screen, will cover the period of Sept. 14-25.
For those looking to renew their standard driver’s licenses that don’t have any changes to their names or addresses are able to apply online through the Minnesota Department of Vehicle Services. Earlier this year, the state approved a one-time ability to renew a driver’s license without the updating of a photo or taking the required vision test. Those looking to upgrade to REAL ID or an enhanced license as well as those with name or address changes to their license have to apply in person, requiring an appointment.
For those willing to potentially wait some time, the License Bureau is accepting limited walk-up appointments, but those with a scheduled appointment will be given priority and walk-ups will be served when a window becomes available.
