Driver's Licenses & Official Identification Cards

Schedule an Appointment


Isanti County is modifying services with the direction that Governor Tim Walz has provided under "Stay Safe MN." Most license services provided in-person require an appointment.

Driver’s License, State ID Card and Instruction Permit services are available by appointment only. An appointment must be made for each applicant. Walk-in customers will not be accepted at this time. If you do not have the required documentation to complete your transaction you will be asked to reschedule for another appointment. CDL Medical Certificate updates and disability/handicap parking placard applications do not require an appointment.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security extended the REAL ID full enforcement deadline to Oct. 1, 2021. 
Learn more about the extension.

Driver’s Licenses that expire during the peacetime emergency will be extended for two months after the month the peacetime emergency ends. Learn more about the extension.

You may be able to renew your driver’s license online.
If you wish to renew or replace your standard driver’s license or ID card and there are no changes to your name, address, signature or license number, you can renew online using DVS Applying for a License or State ID.

Driver’s Licenses, State ID Cards, and Instruction Permits can be renewed, replaced, updated, upgraded and applied for the first time at the Isanti County Auditor-Treasurer office. This office is not exam facilities. This means we are unable to offer knowledge or road tests as well as reinstate suspended or revoked driver’s licenses.

Minnesota has three driver’s license/ID options from which residents may choose:

REAL ID-Compliant Driver’s License or ID Card - Required Documentation

Enhanced Driver’s License or ID Card - Required Documentation

Standard Driver’s License or ID Card - Required Documentation

Determining which type of license or ID card works best depends on what a person needs to use the card for. Visit the DVS License/ID Options page or use their new Help Me Choose tool to find the card that best fits your needs.

 Save time, pre-apply.

Prior to your visit, you can pre-apply for your driver’s license or ID card. You will still need to visit our office to complete the process. This request will decrease the time spent at the counter and forego the need to complete a paper application. Please bring your confirmation page and documents listed on it to our office.
