The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services division (DVS) is making the change so the state complies with federal law. To reduce errors, all Minnesota cards will be processed this way, not just commercial driver's licenses, state DPS officials said.
All DVS exam stations, driver's license agent offices and correctional facilities will be equipped to start the change July 6. The requirements for invalidating a driver's license are not changing.
3 times driver's licenses and ID cards are invalidated
- Application to renew a Minnesota license, instruction permit or identification card
- Application for a duplicate Minnesota license
- Application for a Minnesota license or permit when the customer is a transfer from another U.S. state
