Who Must Pass the Minnesota Written Test?
If you’ve never had a driver’s license in any state or country, you must pass a knowledge test and a vision test, apply for an instruction permit, and pass a road test.
If you have a Minnesota driver’s license and let it expire, you must take the knowledge test again. Should you let your license expire for more than one year you must pass both the knowledge test and the road test again.
Michigan also requires you to retake the written knowledge test after the state revoked your driver’s license. A revocation means that your privilege is withdrawn and you must apply for a new license.
You must also take the Minnesota knowledge test and pass the vision test when moving to Minnesota from another state, U.S. territories, or Canada. Unlike many other states, the test is not waived even if you hold a license from another state.
The same is true when you move to Minnesota from a country other than the United States or Canada. In addition, you must also pass the road test.
