Driver’s Licenses, Permits, & Identification Cards

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:

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. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security extended the REAL ID full enforcement deadline to May 7, 2025. Learn more about the extension. 

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.
