Students leaving for out-of-state colleges and Minnesotans travelling south for the winter, check the expiration date on your driver’s license before leaving the state.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Division of Driver and Vehicle Services recommends you renew early to be sure your license remains active.
Drivers whose licenses expire in 2016 may renew after September 1, and prior to the expiration date without losing a year on the renewal cycle. The new license will expire four full years from the expiration date on the license, rather than four years from the renewal date. It is possible to renew before September 1, but in that case, the new license will expire four years from the original renewal date.
Renewing early ensures that a driver’s license displays a current photo and resident address; it also provides drivers peace of mind and a valid license while away from home. The early renewal service is also available to identification card holders. To complete an early renewal, visit the Roseville’s License Center at 2737 Lexington Ave. Call 651-792-7010 if you have questions.
