Motor Vehicle License Registration and Title Transactions

Insurance information must be provided at the time of registration renewal, title transfer, or application for new Minnesota title/registration. We do not need to view the insurance card, but need policy number and full expiration date (mm/dd/yyyy).
(Per M.S. 169.798, subd. 4) 

As of July 9, 2018, Fast Track transactions are now available for customers who need their title due to an insurance claim or moving to another state. Per Minnesota Statutes 168.325, the state must allow for title transactions to be expedited upon payment of a $20 expedited title fee when the customer needs a certificate of title sooner than DVS is capable of producing using normal procedures. The customer should receive their title within three business days.

For faster service, forms can be filled out before arriving to our office. Forms can be found at the State of Minnesota DVS Website. The most popular forms are:
