License Bureau

Welcome to the New Brighton License Bureau

We offer Class D Knowledge Exams by appointment only! 

Please visit our exam page for information and appointments.

All other services are walk-in only, no appointment needed.

DL for All begins October 1, 2023.

The Driver's License for All law will allow Minnesotans to begin the process of getting a standard Identification Card, class D instruction permit, or driver's license. The law eliminates the need to show proof of legal presence in the United States to get a standard Minnesota ID, class D instruction permit, or driver's license.

Please visit the Minnesota DVS site for complete information.

REAL DLs/IDs Deadline Extended

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has extended the deadline to obtain a REAL ID, the federally mandated identification needed for passengers to board aircraft, to May 7, 2025 due to circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit the Department of Homeland Security website for additional information.
