Proof of insurance required for tabs

Minnesotans who are registering, renewing license tabs or transferring ownership of motor vehicles and motorcycles will need to provide insurance information under a law change that took effect on Jan. 1.
The Minnesota Legislature changed state law last session to require insurance information for vehicle registration. Prior to the change, the law required owners to attest that the motor vehicle or motorcycle was covered by an insurance policy during the registration process; the specific policy information was not required.
Every owner, when applying for motor vehicle or motorcycle registration, renewing their tabs, or transferring ownership, must provide information showing that the motor vehicle or motorcycle is covered by an insurance policy. Owners will need to provide the following information under the new law:
• Name of insurance company
•  Policy number
• Expiration date of the policy
The Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services division (DPS-DVS) is notifying vehicle owners of the new requirement on all 2016 renewal notices, some of which are being mailed this month.
Customers will be prompted to provide the information when applying online, in person and by mail. If a customer fails to provide the information by mail, DVS will contact the customer and require the information to be returned within 30 days.
