​Topic Response
Issued a 60-Day Permit

​If you received a 60-day permit because your vehicle registration or license plate renewal could not be processed, please display the permit in the back window of your vehicle. The permit allows you to legally operate your vehicle until DVS resolves an issue related to the recent computer upgrade and processes your transaction. Law enforcement has been notified. You do not need to take any action.

If you received a 60-day permit because a different vehicle transaction could not be processed, please visit your local deputy registrar office before your permit expires to complete the transaction.

Contact vehicle services at dvs.motor.vehicles@state.mn.us with questions.
