The Minnesota State Legislature has changed the requirements for motor vehicle transactions. Beginning Jan 1, 2016 you must provide proof of current insurance on all motor vehicle transactions. You will need to provide Insurance Company Name, Policy number, and Expiration Date. You can often get this information with a call to your insurance agent.  Sorry, there are no exceptions as the state will not process the transaction without it.  

DEALERS:   We welcome Dealer Work of more than 2 transactions: Mon through Thurs from 8:00 to 11:30 & 1:30 to 4:00 and Fridays from 8:00 to 11:30.

Dealer Work of 2 transactions or less can be done during all hours we are open.

Sorry no Driver's License services are available at our office.
