The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says most motor vehicle services will start up again on Thursday.
The department said technicians spent today restoring computer systems idled during the shutdown. On Thursday, the division will be able to process driver's licenses and vehicle registrations. Online tab renewal and license plate services should also be available.
The department also says:
-- All people with a road test scheduled for July 21 and beyond will be able to take their test at the scheduled time.
-- Anyone who had a test scheduled during the state government interruption should call, beginning Thursday, to reschedule their test. People can call 651-284-1000. Knowledge tests (written tests) will be available beginning Thursday morning.
-- People who are eligible to have their driving privileges reinstated will be able to visit a driver's license center for reinstatement beginning Thursday afternoon.
