Residents can now renew Department of Natural Resources (DNR) vehicle licenses online through Stearns County's Virtual License Center. This would include watercraft, ATV, snowmobile, off-road motorcycle and off-road vehicle licenses.
Rather than making a trip into the office, applicants can simply fill out the renewal information online, pay with a credit/debit card or e-check and their license will be mailed to them within approximately 7Ð10 days.
Every year in the Stearns County License Centers, approximately 12,000 DNR licenses are processed.
"We obviously have a lot of customers who are renewing DNR licenses," said Randy Schreifels, Stearns County Auditor-Treasurer. "This is all about giving them options. Now they have the choice of renewing their license online or coming into the office.Ê We want to make it easier for them to get what they need. This is another step in our goal of making all License Center services available to the public online, 24 hours a day."
Stearns County's Virtual License Center was launched in May of 2009. It's designed to allow customers to submit applications and purchase License Center products online, to avoid visits to the office. In addition to the current DNR licenses now available, residents can purchase birth and death certificates, marriage licenses and marriage certificates online.
