Thousands of Minnesotans didn't waste any time applying for a REAL ID, and DVS is hoping a new feature will help ease the process even more.
As of the end of November, around 28,000 Minnesotans have applied for REAL ID.
There's no huge rush to get REAL IDs. Federal agencies will accept your standard Minnesota driver's license or ID until October 1, 2020.
But if you're looking to get a headstart on the process, DVS has created a pre-application feature on the new driver's license system.
That allows applicants to fill out a majority of the information needed online before heading to the local driver's license office.
The pre-application feature can be found on the DVS website.
