License Center Unable to Process DLs/IDs Sept. 28, 29

The Roseville License Center will be implementing the State of Minnesota’s NEW driver’s license software system on Friday, September 28, and Saturday, September 29. As a result, the License Center will be unable to process driver’s license or identification card applications either day. The License Center will be open and able to process motor vehicle and Department of Natural Resources (DNR) transactions both days and passport services will not be affected. Normal processing for all driver’s license applications will resume on Monday October 1, at 8:00 a.m.

Please expect longer wait times beginning October 1 due to new driver’s license and identification card requirements for those choosing to obtain a REAL DL/ID. Minnesota residents are NOT required to change their driver’s license/identification card on October 1, 2018. Department of Homeland Security has approved a domestic travel extension for Minnesota ID holders. A new Minnesota REAL DL/ID will not be required to board a plane until OCTOBER 1, 2020.

Vehicle Transaction Times

Due slower transaction times created by the new Minnesota License and Registration System (MNLARS), the City of Roseville is implementing a “standby” ticket process toward the end of each business day. License Center employees will make every effort to serve those holding standby tickets, but are unable to guarantee service to all customers with standby tickets prior closing. We ask for your patience as the state continues to work on improving the MNLARS system and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Real ID

Minnesotans can use their standard driver's license or ID card to board a domestic flight until 2020. License Centers across Minnesota will begin issuing Read IDs in October 2018. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety offers additional information about Real ID.
