Minnesota Vehicle Registration Stickers can be renewed in all five of the Anoka County License Centers.

If your renewal notice is lost or you did not receive one, make sure you also bring in vehicle information such as your license plate number and VIN to help us locate the vehicle in our records.

Renewing Someone Else's Registration Stickers?
The State of Minnesota has enacted various laws to protect data privacy and as a result may require additional information to renew the Registration Stickers of a vehicle that you are not the owner of. If you have the current renewal notice for the vehicle, make sure you bring it in to any License Center and we will be able to assist you. If you do not have the renewal notice, the vehicle owner will need to complete and sign a Permission Slip (PDF) to allow us to release their information and Registration Stickers to you.
