Vehicle Registration


8:00AM to 4:15PM Monday Through Friday

We renew MV tabs, transfer and register Minnesota vehicles and first time title or registration of out of state vehicles. 

Current insurance information is required for purchases of tabs and transfers on motor vehicles.


When renewing your motor vehicle tabs and you did not receive your prebill, come in with your plate number and insurance information. We will be able to process the transaction for you. 

If you are picking up tabs for someone else, you must have a fully-completed permission slip to purchase their tabs as well as the current insurance information for the motor vehicle. Bring in your drivers license for identification.
