COVID-19: Changes to Our Services

Due to COVID-19 there are several new changes in the delivery of our services. Changes in services include a walk-up tab service, additional options for vehicle registration tabs such as a drive-up drop box service, and most importantly appointment scheduling. We ask for your cooperation and patience as we navigate through these changes.

As of July 25, 2020, per the Governor's Executive Order 20-81, people in Minnesota are required to wear a face covering in all public indoor spaces and businesses. We will be enforcing this Order. For details visit the MN Department of Health Website. Please note restrooms and drinking fountains will not be available.

Appointments are required for the following services:

  • Driver's License and/or Identification cards *
  • Disability Certificates
  • Motor Vehicle Titles and Transactions
  • Duplicate Plates
  • Duplicate Titles
  • Special Plates
  • Minnesota or Out-of-State Boat Transfers

*Minnesota has an extension for REAL ID enforcement, allowing Federal agencies to accept driver’s licenses and identification cards from Minnesota at Federal facilities, nuclear power plants and federally regulated commercial aircraft until October 1, 2021. Also, Gov. Walz​ signed a bill into law March 28 that provides an extension for Minnesotans whose driver's licenses or ID cards expire during the peacetime emergency. The expiration dates for these licenses will be extended for two months after the month the peacetime emergency ends.

The following walk-up services are available on the lower level exterior of New Brighton City Hall. Please arrive with your paperwork prepared, expect longer wait times, and be mindful of the weather since you will be standing outside. If you are missing additional information or documentation you will need to get back in line.

  • Registration Tabs (Renewal/Duplicates)
  • Game & Fish Licenses
  • DNR (ATV, snowmobile, and watercraft) 

Please take advantage of the Vehicle Registration Tab Renewal Options.
