Do you feel fortunate to have a DMV within the City of La Crescent?
Did you know…
….. that the La Crescent DMV is operated by the City of La Crescent as a deputy of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety and the DMV staff work for the City of La Crescent?
….. that the State of Minnesota reimburses the City of La Crescent for operating the DMV through the filing fees that stay here in La Crescent when you do your transactions such as tab renewals, title transfers and driver’s license renewals at your local DMV office?
….. that you do not need to be a Houston County resident to use our local DMV?
