“Minnesotans, especially those living outside the Twin Cities, have been taking time out of their busy schedules to travel to regional exam stations for testing,” Minnesota Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services Director Emma Corrie said in a press release. “As we consider the colder weather months and continuing COVID concerns, an online knowledge test will allow Minnesotans to take the test at a convenient time in the comfort of their own home."

If you prefer to take the test in person, you can still do that at one of the 14 regional DVS exam stations.
