Douglas County License Bureau Offers New Service


Alexandria, MN — The Douglas County License Bureau is expanding the opportunity to take the written Minnesota Driver’s License Exam. Staff will provide what’s called proctoring for those needing to take the exam necessary to ultimately get a Minnesota Driver’s License.


“We are able to offer this important service five days a week, 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.,” said License Bureau Director Susan Crotteau. “People needing their drivers permit and moving here from other states need to first pass a written test to obtain a license. They can now take that exam with one of our staff members monitoring.”


People who are interested in more details about this new opportunity should call 320-762-3897. Staff members will ensure the prospective test taker is eligible and explain the exact process. There is a $10 fee.  No appointment is needed.


The Douglas County License Bureau is located at 821 Cedar Street. The only entrance is from the new, large parking lot located at the Administration Building which houses the License Bureau. There is no access from Douglas Street.
