Driver's License - Class D - Active Military Duty


If you are on active duty with the U.S. armed forces and have a valid Minnesota driver's license, you are not required to renew your license until you are discharged, regardless of your length of service. This law also applies to the spouses of those on active duty, if the spouse does not reside in Minnesota during the active duty period.

If you are eligible to add a motorcycle endorsement, you must provide written documentation that displays you have completed comparable knowledge and skills tests in another state. Your license must remain current in order to retain the endorsement.
