Motor Vehicles


Scott County Customer Service office will not be able to offer any driver’s license services Friday, Sept. 28 as they transition to a new driver’s license system that will be able to issue REAL IDs in Minnesota.

Scott County Customer Service office will offer all other services.

Remember: You won’t need a REAL ID to board domestic flights until Oct. 1, 2020

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. 

Due to the implementation of MNLARS and its ongoing limitations NO title transfers will be processed after:

3:30 pm daily (5:30 pm on Thursdays) 

This does not effect our other services such as tab renewal, driver's licenses, birth/death certificates, marriage licenses, etc. 

Motor vehicle dealers must continue to be in line by 2:30 


Wait Times

Please know we are working to keep wait times to a minimum as your time is very valuable to us. We would like to assist you with managing your time by keeping you informed of our busy times so that you may schedule your visit accordingly. 

Our busiest days of the week are Mondays and Fridays, particularly the afternoons. 
The first and last weeks of the month are always very hectic due to motor vehicle registration renewals. 
Our quietest times are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings as well as most Thursday evenings after 5:30.

Please know that these are guidelines only. We could be busy at any time and things often change quickly.

Thank you for your patience.
