Too Many Minnesota Families Touched by Domestic Violence

​​Fifty-two people died last year in Minnesota at the hands of a spouse, significant other, former relationship, parent, child, grandparent or other family member. Many more survived the violence, only to have it continue. During this Domestic Violence Awareness Month we recognize and honor Minnesota families impacted by domestic violence.

How DVS document pre-verification will save you time


​When it's time to get your Minnesota driver's license – or renew your old one – you have a few choices. A REAL ID can do more, like get you into government buildings and allow you to fly domestically without a passport, for example. But the federal government requires more documentation to get one. So Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) created an online pre-application, complete with document pre-verification, to help save you time.

Learn how the system works and how it has already helped thousands of Minnesotans in this DPS blog.​
