    Subdivision 1. Religious objection. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 171.07, the
commissioner of public safety may adopt rules to permit identification on a driver's license or
Minnesota identification card in lieu of a photograph or electronically produced image where
the commissioner finds that the licensee has religious objections to the use of a photograph
or electronically produced image.
    Subd. 2. Certain head wear permitted. If an accident involving a head injury, serious
illness, or treatment of the illness has resulted in hair loss by an applicant for a driver's license
or identification card, the commissioner shall permit the applicant to wear a hat or similar head
wear in the photograph or electronically produced image. The hat or head wear must be of an
appropriate size and type to allow identification of the holder of the license or card and must not
