Tab Renewal

Cost: Most cars 10 years and older are ~$65; Newer cars Vary

We offer a Tab Renewal Express Line to streamline the tab renewal process.

Are you Renewing Someone Else's Tabs?

The State of Minnesota only allows the registered owner to request and obtain Tabs for a Motor Vehicle. For a non-owner to renew License Tabs, you'll need detailed written permission from the owner in order for us to sell them to you.

If you need to pick up someone else's tabs, we've made this tab renewal permission form for you to print and have signed by the owner to help make sure you have everything you need when you come in!

Title Transfer

Cost: Most cars 10 years and older are ~$50; Newer cars Vary

Our office handles all types of title transfers and new-to-state registration. If you need your new title quickly, we can help! Our office participates in the state's Fast Track program. For an additional $20, we can expedite your title so that you will receive it in 1-2 weeks.

Replacement Title

Cost: $20.50 

Duplicate Titles are now printed on site at no additional cost! If you need to replace your title quickly because it was lost, stolen destroyed or just not received we can print a new one for you instantly.

Did you just sell your car but realized you can't find your title?

You can come in with the buyer and we can print a replacement title and turn right around and transfer it into the buyer's name!
