Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services offers forms for motor vehicle transactions.
New Insurance Requirement: Effective January 1, 2016, insurance information must be provided at the time of registration renewal, title transfer or application for new Minnesota title/registration.
For registration renewal, submit the renewal notice. If the renewal notice was lost or not received, the applicant must provide the vehicle license plate number and current driver's license or ID card so the staff can access state records and issue your tabs. The vehicle must be in your name to purchase tabs. If the vehicle is not registered in your name you will need a power of attorney form or an authorization form from our office signed by the registered owner of the vehicle. Fees vary according to classification and year of vehicle.
Applicants must submit the foreign state title or current registration if the title is unavailable. Applicants need to provide the following information:
- Current odometer reading
