This site contains all information necessary to get or renew a drivers license.
Minnesota began issuing license plates in 1902 and driver’s licenses in 1934. In 1970, the Motor Vehicle Division of the Secretary of State’s Office became part of the newly formed Department of Public Safety (DPS). In 1972, the Driver’s License Division of the Highway Department also joined DPS. In January 1977, DPS consolidated the two divisions to form Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS).
