The Minnesota Department of Public Safety is reopening 16 motor vehicle offices around the state to start to deal with a backlog of driver tests and exams. “I’ve been waiting for two hours,” said Nick Tillmann, who is in line to get his motorcycle license. “I’m a pretty patient guy, so this doesn’t bother me.”
As the cars moved closer to the building, they were greeted by a worker who told them they would have to get their temperature checked before proceeding. Lane Kadlec is driving her boyfriend so he can renew a suspended license, “We’re only here for one signature, it’s like please just let us in.” She said.
Once inside the building, employees wore masks inside and did the public. There is Plexi-glass barriers in place, and social distancing guidelines are in place.
