Grace Period for Renewing Expiring Driver's Licenses Coming to a Close

The Wright County License Bureau is reminding residents that the grace period for being able to drive with an expired driver’s license is ending soon.

The deadline for those with commercial driver’s licenses is Sunday, Feb. 28. After that date, the grace period that resulted from state license bureaus and DMVs being closed for six weeks will no longer apply.

For those with standard driver’s licenses, the deadline is Wednesday, March 31. After that date, they will be deemed driving with an expired license and subject to ticketing.

It is estimated that 300,000 Minnesotans had driver’s license that were set to expire between March 13, 2020 and Feb. 28, 2021. That number doesn’t include individuals that applied to upgrade their licenses to Real ID or enhanced licenses.

There is an option for those with expiring licenses to renew online. If nothing changed on their licenses (name, address, etc.), they are eligible to renew online in a one-time program that won’t require a vision screening and the photo on the license will remain the same. Anyone looking for a Real ID license will have to renew in-person because of paperwork requirements that accompany upgrading to Real ID or an enhanced license.

For those eligible to renew their licenses online, it can be done here: https://onlineservices.dps.mn.gov/EServices/_/
