Crowds show up at Minnesota DVS offices to take driving tests, renew licenses


David Joles – Star Tribune

Fourteen DVS exam stations reopened Tuesday, including this one in Arden Hills where during the mid-morning an estimated 200 people waited outside in a line that stretched around the entire block to get into the building.

Crowds surged Tuesday at Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) offices as anxious motorists arrived at sunrise and waited hours to take their written driving tests, long postponed by the state's stay-at-home order issued in late March.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety reportedly reopened 14 of its DVS offices across the state, resuming driving knowledge tests and accepting applications for driver's licenses. Behind-the-wheel testing will resume Tuesday with priority given to the more than 13,000 people who had their exams canceled due to the stay-at-home order.
