The DVS says testing is not required as long as the driver’s license is expired less than one year and was in good standing prior to expiring.
Those who need to renew their licenses can do so online. Minnesotans must renew in person to make changes to their driver’s license or intend to apply for a Real ID or enhanced driver’s license or ID card.MORE NEWS: Man, 75, Killed In Otter Tail County Crash
