As Minnesotans consider whether to apply for REAL ID, Emma Corrie with the state Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) is encouraging everyone to take advantage of online tools to help make the process easier.

“We are now well poised online to be able to help Minnesotans complete almost 3/4ths of their application right online.”

Minnesotans have until May 3rd, 2023, to be REAL ID ready, but Corrie says many are deciding whether to apply for a REAL ID or enhanced driver’s license or ID when they renew their driver’s license or ID card in the coming months.
