April 27th UPDATE

Eligible Minnesotans can now apply for a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) online while DVS exam stations are closed due to COVID-19.

This service allows our students that have passed their CDL road test in Wisconsin to apply for their Minnesota CDL. 

Visit​ and select Apply for a Commercial Driver's License in the driver services section and follow the prompts to apply. You will need to complete the online application and pay the license fee. A new photo and vision screening are not required. 
This online service allows Minnesotans to:
  • Upgrade from a commercial learners permit to a full CDL.
  • Upgrade a current CDL to a higher class of CDL.
  • Remove a restriction from their current CDL.
  • Add endorsements to their current CDL. 
Minnesotans are eligible for this if they:
  • Have a valid Minnesota class D or commercial driver's license.
  • Are at least 21 years old. 
  • Have recently passed required knowledge and/or skills tests. (Knowledge and skills tests are not available while DVS exam stations are closed during Gov. Walz's​ stay at home order.)
You will need the following forms when applying: 
  • A completed Commercial Driver's Medical Self-Certification form​.
  • Medical Examiner's Certificate, if one is not already on file with DVS.
  • One of the following proof of domicile presence documents:
