Driver's License / State ID Cards
Service Delivery Update
In line with state and county reopening efforts, effective July 6, 2021, we will fully reopen to serve you with no appointment needed. Appointments remain available for passport services only. You can visit our locations any time during business hours. We look forward to serving you!
Driver's licenses, ID card and instruction permits can be renewed, replaced, updated, upgraded and applied for for the first time at the Washington County License Centers located in Forest Lake, Stillwater and Woodbury. The county license centers are not exam facilities and we are unable to offer knowledge or road tests or reinstate suspended or revoked driver's licenses.
