Temporary Closure - MNDRIVE Coming in November

The Minnesota Department of Motor Vehicles will be migrating to MNDRIVE, the new statewide computer system for driver’s licenses and vehicle registrations in November. To make the transition, license centers across the state, including Roseville, will be closed from Tuesday, November 10 at 3:00 p.m. through Sunday, November 15. The Roseville License Center will reopen for appointments and walk-in tab renewals on Monday, November 16 at 7:30 a.m. This temporary closure will not affect the Roseville Passport Center, which will continue to transact appointments during normal business hours. 

The Roseville License Center is open by appointment only to process Driver's License Applications, Motor Vehicle Transactions and DNR/Fish and Game Applications. Please click the link below to schedule an appointment.

REAL DLs/IDs Deadline Extended

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has extended the deadline to obtain a REAL ID, the federally mandated identification needed for passengers to board aircraft, one year to October 1, 2021 due to circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit the Department of Homeland Security website at for additional information.

With the extension, travelers will not need a REAL ID, Enhanced Driver's License or ID or a passport book or passport card to board domestic flights or to enter federal facilities until October 1, 2021.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety has additional information about REAL ID. For information about obtaining a passport book or passport card, visit the U.S. Department of State website. 

Once the License Center reopens, please expect longer wait times due an expected backlog of expired licence renewals and new driver’s license and identification card requirements for those choosing to obtain a REAL DL/ID.

Enhanced Driver's License and Identification Card

The Roseville License Center accepts applications for the enhanced version of the Minnesota driver’s license or identification card. Enhanced driver’s licenses and identification cards allow re-entry into the United States via land and sea from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda or the Caribbean.

Applicants should allow a minimum of 45 minutes to complete the enhanced driver’s license or identification card process. This process is only for enhanced driver’s license or identification card applications and not for standard or REAL ID/DL.
