The Driver and Vehicle Services Instructional Guide

The MN Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) oversees driver services through the 87 counties in Minnesota. The DVS manages driver’s permitting & licensing, registrations, records, renewals, and guidance for roadway safety. More than 243 DMV offices and agencies are available in the state.
