Enhanced Driver's License (EDL)
Currently, Anoka County is Not processing Enhanced Driver's Licenses (EDL) or  Enhanced Identification Cards (EID). The EDL/EID allows Minnesota residents to re-enter the U.S. at its land or seaports when returning from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda or the Caribbean, in addition to normal driving privileges. Border-crossing guards can use the EDL/EID to verify your identity and citizenship. EDL/EID cards are among the federally-approved border-crossing documents required under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI). An EDL is also available to a Minnesota driver who qualifies for a commercial driver license (CDL). For more information or to learn how to obtain an EDL/EID, please visit the Driver and Vehicle Services page.
