The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services division will begin issuing a new design for driver’s licenses and ID cards in August. What do you think of the new look?

MN Dept. of Public Safety
  • You do not need to replace your current driver’s license or ID card, unless the card is expiring, or you need to change your address or name. Minnesotans will be able to use their current license and ID card until the expiration date on the card.
  • Minnesotans whose application or renewal is processed after August, 6, 2018 will receive the new look card.
  • Minnesotans whose driver’s licenses or identification cards expire before October 2018 should plan to renew their cards as they normally would. The renewed license will be valid for four years, barring a suspension or revocation.
  • The cost of the new cards is the same as the old cards.
