Minnesotans Can Use Standard Driver's Licenses for Federal Purposes through Oct. 10, 2018

Minnesota has an extension for REAL ID enforcement, allowing federal agencies to accept standard driver's licenses and identification cards at federal facilities, nuclear power plants and federally regulated commercial aircraft until Oct. 10, 2018.

The Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services division (DVS) is working to meet the October 2018 deadline. More information on how to obtain a REAL ID compliant driver's license will be available in the coming months.
