Birth, Death, & Marriage

COVID-19 Status Update - 3/26/2020 11:30AM

Governor Tim Walz issued a stay-at-home order for Minnesota effective Friday, March 27, at 11:59 PM through April 10. Only essential services will remain open.

We will continue to staff the office for critical items such as property tax payments and vital records requests (i.e., birth, death, and marriage certificates).

What does this mean?All driver’s license agents and deputy registrar offices must close.  

No applications for tabs, title transfers, duplicate titles, disability certificates, recreational vehicles, et cetera will be accepted after 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 27, and we will do our best to process any items left in the Scott County drop box prior to the cutoff. Any items unable to be completed will be returned by mail.

As our government buildings are closed to the public, we are unable to process driver’s and marriage license applications at this time.

If you have any questions about these or any other services Scott County provides, please feel free to call us at 952-496-8432. Staff are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to answer your calls.

Please note that all DVS offices will be closed including exam stations.

Granting extensions for driver’s licenses, ID cards, and tabs requires a change to state law, and the Minnesota Legislature is scheduled to consider this topic. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services division (DPS-DVS) will provide additional information and guidance if anything changes. We will post any updates on social media and to our website as they become available.
Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time.
