How To Get A Minnesota Drivers License

Minnesota has a graduated driver’s licensing system for teen drivers. The first step is to purchase a driver’s Ed course and get a permit. For students age 15 or over, you must have completed the classroom part of your driver’s Ed course and be enrolled in the behind –the-wheel portion. You must also pass a written knowledge test (available on paper or on a computer at certain locations) and a vision test. The learner’s permit fee is $13.25. You must pass a knowledge test with a score of at least 80 percent.
That means you’ll need to correctly answer at least 32 of the 40 question (multiple choice and true or false) to pass. You may retake the test again for free, but not on the same day. If you need to take the test more times, there is a $10 charge per test. When moving to Minnesota, you have 60 days to register your learner’s permit or intermediate driver’s license with the DVS (essentially the Minnesota DMV).
You may apply for a Minnesota intermediate driver’s license if you’ve had your learner’s permit in the previous state for 6 months, you are 16 years or older, and you have completed Minnesota driver’s Ed requirements of 30 classroom hours and 6 behind-the-wheel hours. To get your intermediate driver’s license you must also provide a certified copy of your driving record (to prove you’ve had your permit for 6 months), submit proof of out-of-state driver’s ed course completion, submit your out-of-state learner’s permit, complete and pass the permit test, pass a vision test and road test and pay an additional fee of $25.25.
To transfer your out-of-state learner’s permit to Minnesota you need to provide two forms of identification (birth certificate, passport, social security card or other approved document), submit your out-of-state learner’s permit, pass the written knowledge test, complete the application and pay a fee of $13.25. With a learner’s permit, you may only drive with a licensed driver age 21 or over in the vehicle and you may not use a cell phone or hands-free device while driving.
You may apply for a Minnesota Intermediate License at age 16, after having your learner’s permit for 6 months, been driving with no moving, drug or alcohol violations, and you’ve passed all the driver’s ed requirements (written and driving). There is also a Farm Work License available to those under age 18 that follows the same guidelines, with a farm work restriction.
