No cell phone? Call for an appointment or use drop box for tab renewals
DMV locations owned and operated by the Occupational Development Center (ODC), have moved to using a virtual lobby for in-person services such as drivers license renewals in an effort to mitigate exposure risk for customers. This includes the DMVs in Hibbing and Grand Rapids.
When you arrive, walk up to the door and scan the QR code with your phone, then return to your car to wait for the next available clerk. You will then receive a text when you are next in line, after which you may proceed into the lobby to be helped.
If you are not able to use the virtual lobby, please call (218) 262-4329 in Hibbing, or (218) 326-4225 in Grand Rapids to make an appointment. These DMVs are no longer offering services on a first come, first serve basis. Drop boxes are posted on the outside of the office to collect and process vehicle tab and DNR renewal envelopes. Instructions for use are posted next to the drop box.
You may search the net and type in the keyword “dmv services near me” to find the nearest one in your area.
The DMV in Virginia, also operated by ODC, does not feature a virtual lobby and continues to offer its services on a first come, first serve basis due to its location inside the Thunderbird Mall.
Services at all three DMV locations are available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
