Expiring MN driver’s license/state IDs extended
The State legislature has passed a COVID-19 response bill. The bill extends the expiration of driver’s licenses, state IDs and disability certificates or permits that would have expired during this time. Expiration dates will be two months from when the health emergency is declared over.
Out of state licenses may be used in Minnesota for more than 60 days.
