Drivers Licenses & IDs
COVID-19 Status Update - 4/6/2020 10:30AM
Effective today (April 6), Scott County Customer Service will again be accepting transactions through the drop boxes for tabs, title transfers, disability certificates, duplicate titles and other deputy registrar services. This does not include driver’s license and marriage license applications, as face-to-face transactions are still prohibited.
Please ensure that all transactions left in the drop boxes have a phone number enclosed. Requests will be processed within 24 hours and returned via mail.
Please follow us on Facebook to see our step by step videos on how to process transactions during a building closure. Questions? You can also reach out to us via email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 952-496-8432. We have staff ready and available to answer your questions from 8 AM – 4:30 PM, Monday – Friday.
We apologize for the rapid change in information, but we thank you for your understanding and patience during this difficult time. We appreciate your business.
Dealers: The Governor’s order recognizes that motor vehicle repairs and limited sales are considered critical services and may continue during this period. According to the order, dealerships may conduct "sales that are necessary to allow for essential travel, when conducted by appointment, and only when CDC and MDH guidelines, including social distancing, can be met.”
Granting extensions for driver’s licenses, ID cards, and tabs requires a change to state law, and the Minnesota Legislature is scheduled to consider this topic. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services division (DPS-DVS) will provide additional information and guidance if anything changes. We will post any updates on social media and to our website as they become available.
Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time.
Save time - pre-apply online for driver’s licenses and IDs
Use the online pre-application to enter a significant portion of your driver’s license, ID or REAL ID information before coming to the driver’s license office. You’ll save time and learn what required documents to bring with you. Pre-apply for your license or ID card now!
A standard driver’s license or ID is acceptable for domestic air travel until October 2020.
Please expect longer wait times due to the new driver’s license requirements. Because of these longer wait times, we may not be able to assist customers who arrive during the final hour of business. Customers will be informed when they arrive if a transaction cannot be completed that day.
ARE YOU A VETERAN?
Please let us know!
We’ll need to view your DD 214 at the time of the application.
Minnesota offers veterans the opportunity to display their veteran status on their driver license or state ID card. This can help you obtain discounts and other benefits from local businesses and organizations without having to carry discharge papers with you as proof of service. When you apply for, renew, or update your license you will need to present your DD 214 in order to qualify for the indicator.
THANK YOU FOR SERVING OUR COUNTRY!
Please note that the Elko New Market license center is TEMPORARILY CLOSED due to the ongoing issues with the Minnesota State computer system. We apologize for any inconvenience.
