Get Your Minnesota Driver’s License

Do you want to learn to drive? We currently help high school students* and adults acquire
their driver’s license through our Coaching and Assister programs. Receiving your driver’s license can be a significant step
in establishing greater independence and stability for you and your family. Here’s how we can help:

Application Documents

We can assist you in completing your pre-application and ensure you have all the necessary identification documents. You can review a list of documents you will need to apply for an MN drivers license below:

Permit Classes and Practice Testing

We’ve enrolled more than 400 Afghan arrivals in free, online, drivers permit classes offered in Dari, Pashto, and English to prepare prospective drivers for their class D knowledge exam. Familiarizing yourself with the driving manual and testing materials will
give you the greatest chance of passing the test. We also offer practice testing sessions every week.
