Minnesotan’s with standard driver’s licenses or identification cards are strongly encouraged to consider applying for a REAL ID, ahead of the full enforcement date of October 1st, 2020. Without proper identification, you won’t be able to fly or enter a federal facility.   Department of Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington encourages you to complete the on-line pre-application before heading to the DMV:

“There is some additional documentation that you probably have not seen getting your regular driver’s license. But when you do the pre-application it will remind you about all of the different pieces of documentation that you need.

Less than 10-percent of all Minnesota driver’s license and ID card-holders have a REAL-ID compliant card right now.
