Department of Public Safety to reopen more KLGR-area drivers exam stations in January

Minnesotans looking for driver’s license knowledge and road tests closer to home will soon have additional options. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety will reopen all remaining drivers exam stations that were closed during the pandemic. Fifty-one exam stations are opening this month, which means all 93 stations statewide will be open by Jan. ​31.

Among the KLGR-area exam stations reopening this month are those in Redwood Falls, Montevideo, Olivia, Granite Falls, and Windom. KLGR-area exam stations that reopened in November include New Ulm and Gaylord.

The Department of Public Safety reduced the number of exam stations to 15 across the state following Gov. Tim Walz’s stay-at-home order in March of 2020.

Customers can make appointments within two weeks of an exam station opening. Minnesotans can find a complete list of locations and services online at
