MINNESOTA LICENSE PLATES GO DIGITAL. It began in April 2008 and will take several years, but eventually all Minnesota license plates will be flat instead of embossed. The new plate has black letters, which creates higher contrast and greater readabiltiy.
NEW TEEN DRIVING LIMITATIONS IN EFFECT AUGUST 1 New laws taking effect August 1 will help newly licensed teens hone their driving skills during the first year of licensure by reducing exposure to two high-risk situations: driving late at night and carrying multiple teen passengers. These provisions also apply to teens licensed before August 1, 2008.
TECHNOLOGY SURCHARGE. Starting July 1, 2008 and ending June 30, 2012, a surcharge of $1.75 is due for every driver’s license application, title transaction, and vehicle registration renewal. It will be used to replace the existing DVS automated systems and processes by providing an up-to-date, user-responsive set of business processes and the systems that support it.
NEW SESQUICENTENNIAL PLATES. Commemorate Minnesota's 150 years of statehood with the new Sesquicentennial license plates. The plates are now available at all deputy registrar offices. Cost is $35 plus an $8.50 filing fee. $25 of the cost is a minimum, one-time donation to the Sesquicentennial Commission.
