Minnesotans are now able to get a new driver’s licenses the same day they apply at two locations participating in a pilot project.

The same-day issued cards are available to those who apply for, renew or replace a standard class D driver’s license, permit or identification card at the Dakota County License Center in Lakeville or the Clay County Department of Motor Vehicles in Moorhead. It’s the first time this service has been offered in Minnesota, according to the Department of Public Safety.

The initiative is part of a pilot program authorized by the Minnesota Legislature. The program will run through June 30, 2023.

Customers are not able to renew or replace a REAL ID, which will be required to board a domestic flight or enter a federal facility beginning in May 2023, or an enhanced driver’s license or ID, which can be used for U.S. border crossings by land or sea. They would need to downgrade to a standard license in order to receive it over the counter.

If an applicant is about to turn 21, they can only apply for a same-day issued card on or after the day they turn 21.

Due to the card stock and laminate used in the printing process, the same-day issued cards will have a slightly different look and feel, according to the department. There is no additional fee for same-day issued cards.
