In an effort to provide a safer environment for our customers and staff, we will be limiting services we provide face-to-face:

  • Select services will be available on an appointment basis. 
  • In addition to appointments, Anoka County License Centers have reestablished limited walk-in traffic for conducting business. Customers who visit the License Centers on a walk-in basis should be aware their business can only be addressed on a conditional basis: License Center staff must have time in their schedules between appointments, and CDC building capacity guidelines must be adhered to in order to accommodate walk-in traffic. 
  • You can make an appointment here.
  • We are currently experiencing an extremely high call volume.
  • We will no longer be processing tab renewals in-office, due to COVID-19 restrictions. We will be processing tabs via drop box, mail, and over the phone.
  • Please utilize our Drop Boxes to process select services to reduce the amount of customers in office and to limit face-to-face interactions.
