REAL DLs/IDs Increase Wait Times

License Centers across Minnesota, including Roseville, began issuing REAL driver's licenses and Identification cards on October 1, 2018. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety offers additional information about REAL ID. Please expect longer wait times due to new driver’s license and identification card requirements for those choosing to obtain a REAL DL/ID. Minnesota residents are NOT required to change their driver’s license/identification card on October 1, 2018. Department of Homeland Security has approved a domestic travel extension for Minnesota ID holders. A new Minnesota REAL DL/ID will NOT be required to board a plane until OCTOBER 1, 2020.
