The Driver and Vehicle Services division of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety is responsible for licensing and testing motorists.Their website is drive.mn.gov. It also regulates motor vehicle dealers, and oversees Minnesota’s commercial vehicle registration program. In 2015, the DVS’ Public Information Center processed more than 1.4 million phone calls and ten thousand email correspondences.
The new online system at drive.mn.gov will expand DVS’s ability to administer exams while reducing the wait time for test takers at exam stations. That’s good news for people who are trying to get their license in the state. Deborah Maertens, for instance, recently moved to Dalton, Minn.
What is the new driving license system in Minnesota?
Minnesota is in the process of overhauling its driver licensing system. The state legislature is considering changes to vehicle regulations and licensing fees. However, during the recent pandemic, the state’s driver and vehicle services division closed all 93 exam stations.
- The new system requires fewer test stations.
- There are now fifteen test centers throughout the state.
- The original exam stations were only open part time, requiring DVS employees to travel to “satellite” locations to complete tests.
- The consolidation of services will result in greater efficiency for the DVS. It will also allow for more drivers to take exams.
Minnesota teens must complete drivers’ education before they can get their license. The courses consist of both a classroom portion and a behind-the-wheel training component. Teens must also complete an approved driving program and pass the state’s written exam. You can see the details at drive.mn.gov.
