DMVs Across State, Including Golden Valley, To Be Closed Or Providing Reduced Services July 20-24

From Thurs, July 20, through Mon, July 24, all Minnesota Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) locations will be closed or providing reduced services. Golden Valley’s DMV in City Hall will provide reduced services all three days.

The closure is due to a statewide DMV software transition, which will require moving all DMV data on file to the new system.

Meagan Weber, Golden Valley’s motor vehicle licensing supervisor, recommends people plan ahead for their DMV needs and expect that there may be longer lines leading up to the closure.

The new Minnesota Licensing and Registration System will feature a much quicker turnaround for documents, Weber says. For example, people will receive new titles in about a week as opposed to the two to three months it takes under the current system. But, Weber adds, because the new software will require more thorough data entry at time of service, expect lines at the DMV to be a little longer.

Golden Valley DMV Services Available During Software Transition:

  • Thur, July 20, 8 am–1 pm: full services; 1–5 pm: reduced services
  • Fri, July 21, 8 am–5 pm: reduced services
  • Mon, July 24, 8 am–1 pm: reduced services; 1–5 pm: full services

Reduced services include DNR licenses (fishing, game, etc) and limited driver’s licensing (duplicate licenses and change of address). Renewals and title services will not be available during the transition.

If you have questions about the pending changes or the closure schedule, contact Weber at 763-593-8111 or
