Minnesota DVS offices try license renewals by appointment
May 18, 2020
Most state-run Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) offices closed during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order, and that has created angst for thousands of drivers whose licenses have expired in recent weeks - or will soon.
Take a deep breath and relax; services are resuming this week. But there is no need to rush to the nearest deputy registrar's office. Licenses and ID cards that have expired since Gov. Tim Walz issued a peacetime emergency March 13 are still valid. Expiration dates for any license or ID that lapses during the peacetime emergency will be extended for two months after the month in which the peacetime emergency ends, said Bruce Gordon of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.
