Brooklyn Park residents who need to renew license plate tabs, transfer titles or complete other transactions will need to be aware of closures regarding the services July 20 to 24 when the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services division upgrades and replaces the vehicle services computer system statewide.

Closures for services at all office locations

July 20 to 24

  • Vehicle services such as tab renewal, plate replacement and title application, will not be available.
  • Driver’s license, permit or identification card renewal and application services will be available; however, some offices may have different hours or be closed.

July 22

  • In addition to motor vehicle registration and title services, driver’s license services will also be unavailable on July 22. Most DVS and deputy registrar offices will be closed on this date.


Please be patient for this statewide system replacement, for a smooth transaction, take care of all needs before the implementation of the system.

The State is replacing the 30 year old system used for motor vehicle and driver’s license transactions and record information.

Once the new system is in place, turnaround time for title transactions will be reduced and customers will leave the office knowing their vehicle record has been updated in real time instead of experiencing a delay in the process.

Reminders for customers after July 24

  • Customers should allow extra time for an office visit as everyone adjusts to the new system.
  • As always, customers need to bring all documentation required to successfully complete the transaction.
