Quick Lane Service Options

Three Ways to Renew Your Vehicle/DNR Registrations

1. Quick Lane Walk-in

Tab renewals, game and fishing licenses, and DNR tab renewals may now simply walk in to the Quick Lane for these services!

For vehicle renewals, valid insurance is required. Electronic insurance cards are acceptable.

If you are picking up motor vehicle tabs for someone else without the renewal notice you will need to have an original Authorization Form (PDF) completed by the owner. Please note it must be an original with a live ink signature.

If you are picking up DNR tabs for someone else, a notarized consent form is required to be completed by the owner. Please note it must be an original with live ink signatures.

Cash, check or credit card accepted (2.49% credit/debit processing fee).

2. Mail It In (review instructions below)

City of New Brighton
Attn: License Bureau
803 Old Highway 8 NW
New Brighton, MN 55112

No cash accepted for mail-in.

3. Use Our Two Drop Boxes (review instructions below)

The first Drop Box is located in the lower level parking lot outside New Brighton City Hall. It is the same box used for utility bills. 

The second Drop Box is inside the license bureau next to the council chambers.

Renewal notices and payments left in the Drop Boxes before 11:00 am will be mailed out by the next business day. After 11:00 am they will be mailed out within two business days.

  • This service is available for current Minnesota Residents and only for tabs.
  • This option is not available for Dealers.
  • No cash accepted at drop box.

Instructions for Renewing Your Vehicle Registration

Include your insurance company name, policy number, and expiration date (MM/DD/YYYY) with payment and Renewal Notice(s) in one envelope. One check may be used for multiple renewals.

There are two options to make a payment for dropbox and mail-in:

  • Pay by check! Checks are payable to City of New Brighton and must include a current phone number and driver's license number.
  • Print and fill out a Credit Card Authorization form (PDF).

Verify the address and Minnesota County on your registration renewal notice. If no changes are noted on the renewal notice, it is assumed that all information is correct and accurate for processing.

The Deputy Registrar reserves the right to not process tab renewals if the information is missing or incorrect.
