Great service during crazy COVID times I received great service during crazy COVID times. The staff at Forest Lake location were friendly and very helpful.
Real ID license Great, quick efficient service during the covid pandemic. It didn't take more than 15 minutes since I pre-apply online, so just had to show the proper documentation, picture, signature and out. I also checked online in their system, and they are two months out from now for appointments, but I must had picked up a cancellation appointment from their system.

License Appointment center We were there for passport application. I liked everything with the appointment. A drive through would increase efficiency of appointment and forms can be filled in car. Forms can be left outside or handed post drive through Q&A session. Since online appointments are scarce a lot more centers need to be created or some way is needed to make it more efficient. Thanks for keeping life going on. Stay safe

License Center Appointment I cannot say enough positive about my experience. Rather than waiting in line not knowing how long I’d wait, having an appointment was great. I was seen on time, and the two staff members who worked with me to renew my driver’s license were knowledgeable and friendly. I hope making appointments at the license center is the way of the future!

License Center Appointment I recently had to come in to renew my drivers license at the Forest Lake location of the Washington County License Center. With the restrictions due to COVID19 an appointment was necessary. All I can say is whatever changes are made after life gets back to "normal", please do not change this process. I LOVED that I had an actual appointment time and no longer stood in a line like cattle and waited for my number to be called. If I have to make an appointment every time I head to the license center, I welcome that with open arms! Thanks!

Drivers license I wanted an ID license but because I did not bring my marriage license I was told that I had to accept a regular license and apply for a passport if I wanted to fly. This will cost me additional money. I had other ID with my married name on it. My expired license had my married name on it but since I would need to get another appointment I had to go for the non ID license. The gal was polite but this is not satisfactory. Your letter should state that marriage licenses are necessary even if you have had your “new” name for 55 years. I am 80 years old. Thanks!

Driver’s License Duplicate The lady who waited on us did a very good job. Very friendly and helpful! Nice staff at this site. We had a appointment to renew tabs and found out I could renew the online, which I did. I kept the appointment due to that ly husband lost his driver’s license. I tried to change the reason for the appointment online and it would not allow me to do it. Maybe that is something the county DMV could do to help the citizens of Washington county. Thank you.

Great Customer Service In these Covid times, it was hard to get an appointment online, but when I called they fit me in the next day and even helped with a second service that indexed to do. Both the person who helped set up my appointment and the person who helped me when I went to my appointment were very kind and helpful! Thanks!
Drivers License Renewal I was in on Tuesday at 5:00 - the girl I had helping me was incredibly rude and not helpful at all. I was trying to get a RealID instead of a renewal and had all the paperwork - but she said it wasn't acceptable. I even tried to email her a statement to print out but she wouldn't do it. Not helpful at all. I will not go to the Stillwater DMV in the future. Terrible customer service
Mitch P
Friendly but late start Even though I showed up on time for my 9am appointment, they were not ready for another 20 minutes. Once I was called back, the service was friendly and efficient. The deduction in rating is only for the late start of a scheduled appointment.

Real ID application appointment I needed to renew my license/get a REAL ID for the MN requirement for next year to travel domestically without a passport. I signed up for an appointment and pre-applied online. Once I got to the DMV, it took about 20 min max to complete the process. The social distancing was great and I felt very safe.
Ruth C
Great Service! Most things we do now in the time of Covid take more time and more patience. I think this visit to Washington County office was actually more efficient and streamlined than pre Covid. I completed my application and made my appointment online. Then, it only took me less than 10 minutes to complete everything at my appointment. If feasible, I think you should continue this method post Covid. I also had great service at the appointment. Thank you for a great experience!

Steve C
Don't bother Scheduled an appointment for passport renewal. Turns out, they don't do passport renewal any more. Why you can schedule an appointment for something they don't do is a mystery to me. They can take you picture (so can Walgreens, without the two month wait), but that's about it. Waste of time.

What a JOKE It was a waste of my time to come in for a real ID. I was told I needed a marriage certificate?? I had my divorce papers with me ( for a just in case ) No one else I know had to have a marriage certificate. I have been divorced for over 20 years and have always stayed current with my license. WHAT A JOKE!

Car Registration When I arrived at the building for my appointment, I was immediately escorted to a window for assistance. Kathy was the associate assigned to help me with transferring title of my car to Minnesota from out-of-state. She was very personable, professional and accommodating. The transaction was expedited flawlessly and was completed in a timely manner. I highly recommend this office for your DMV and identification transactions. I also recommend you review their website before your appointment so you come with everything you need. I would also like to see them continue with appointment requirements post pandemic. It seems to work and limits extended wait times. This is my 2nd appointment there in a month and both went really well. Thank you.
Richard M
Great Service, Personal Care I received exceptional service and care during my appointment, and provided with clear instructions and information to be able to complete what I needed. Unlike other locations where clerks do not seem to understand what is needed, and lack caring and personal attention to help out, Washington County exceeds all expectations!
Kimberly G
Great Service! While I think it was a challenge to secure an appointment, and it took two months, the overall process from check-in to execution went extremely well! The team was all very pleasant and very helpful, and the limited amount of people in the space was perfect. Thank you for all the safety procedures and cleaning that went on while I was being taken care of!
Great job I was so impressed with the quality of customer service I got from the Cottage grove dmv with the processing of my passport. The lady who assisted me was so knowledgeable about her job.

Prompt and Helpful Service I made an appointment in August for October (first available). I arrived on time and was directed to a chair to wait to be called. I didn't wait long and was provide prompt and helpful service- renewing my license. The service rep explained my choices to ensure I was getting the right kind of license (Real ID) and not overspending for something I didn't need (enhanced license). I appreciated that she took that time to explain and point out the unnecessary expense. She was also kind to let me ask if my lipstick had smeared under my mask before taking my picture- not critical, but certainly appreciated. I was in and out in less than 20 mins and look forward to receiving my license in 8 weeks.
Driver License renewal Review of Stillwater Service Counter 11 Attendant non-empathetic & brusk considering residents have been sheltering since March 1 and can feel anxious, room felt foreign due to remodel of room with teller-like stations around 3/4 of room. Having served 32 yrs at WACO providing customer service in a prominent department myself, feel that more training is necessary for clerks to put the public at ease and truly be helpful in these unusual trying times. Been a resident of WACO for 40 years and do expect being treated with dignity. The wonderful woman giving out masks at the doorway was kind and welcoming to me. After waiting for four months to be able to renew DL at all was off-putting enough to most folks. Felt like a person was filling out paperwork to be incarcerated in jail Instead of dL renewal. Too bad there wasn’t enough money to provide a couple more inches at the teller window to sat down our paperwork of identity proof. This cramped area added to the discomfort of your “new” process. Bring back MN nice to your employee training, it goes a long way to working with your taxpayers.
Deborah B
Enhanced ID I love the new system of scheduling an appt. Although I had to wait a month to go in, there was a 2 min wait for my appt instead of the 60-90m min wait that has become normal. The lady who helped me was friendly and helpful. Everyone who works there more relaxed and happy with out the crowds waiting.
Fast & Efficient Fast and efficient service once you get in. My Driver's license expired early July. In early June I made an appointment to renew. Earliest available at that time was late August. I completed pre-application materials online. Once at the License office, new pictures etc took less than 5-min. Wear your mask. Mind your distance. Follow the lines... ...and now Real-Id requires processing by Federal I was told if I don't receive my new license by December, I should let them know.
Excellent experience My appointment was for renewal/upgrade of my driver's license. It was a very pleasant experience. Great service.

License Renewal I filled our the renewal pre-application online on May 18, but could not get an appointment scheduled until July 28th and my license expired during that time. My husband drove me to the Stillwater licensing office. The woman at the table in the hall greeted me politely and had me stand in the Pre-Applied line. Within 20 minutes she led me into the office. The agent at window 11 was very polite and helpful. She checked all my documents required for the real ID and took my photo. Everything went smoothly. It was a very positive experience.

John P
license renewal Review of Woodbury Service Counter 3 Made appointment to renew my license 2 months in advance. Walked into Woodbury location 10 minutes for my appointment and a gentleman greeted me and took my old license and told me I had to wait outside until the buzzer he gave me vibrated. My appointment was for 4:00. At 4:15 I finally went back in to ask why I have to wait when I made an appointment 2 months ago? He then tells he didn't know I had an appointment. I stated when I checked in and I handed you my old license and paperwork I filled out on-line 2 months ago wouldn't that be enough proof? Why don't the person greeting you ask if the person has an appointment instead of assuming that person is a walk in? There were 9 tellers with only 3 customers being helped at any given time. I understand taking precautions for Covid-19 but to see such inefficiency is unacceptable.

Renew MN drivers license at Stillwater DMV The DMV did a great job getting me in and out of my appointment in about 5 minutes. The problem is scheduling an appointment and waiting 3 months to get in! There was no line and only 4 of the 16 desks being used. The scheduling could have very likely have been much better.

License Renewal Recently, I had an appointment to renew my drivers license and upgrade to a Real ID. My experience was fabulous. Pleasant, helpful staff, organized, example of following the safety protocols for COVID-19 that I’ve seen to date. Oh, and my appointment took about 20 minutes from start to finish. When does that happen at the DMV?? 😉 I overheard a staff member talking to another customer about how happy they all are about the process. Seems like you might be in to something long-term.

If I have any DMV stuff that needs to be handled, I will return to Stillwater DMV. Thanks Mike R

Woodbury License Center I had made an appointment about six weeks prior. When I got to the license center there were three staff people checking in, but only one line. The three of them were clustered together and seemed to be only servicing one person at a time. However there were two check in kiosks. I would recommend that one line be for those who have an appointment and the other line for those that do not (who expect to wait). I did not expect to wait since I had an appointment. When I finally got to my assigned counter, there was no one there. I had to go back to the check in person and she had to find someone to come help me. Not a very smooth experience
Thank you I felt safe during the process. Everything was wiped down, the tables and equipment were cleaned, it wasn’t crowded and even the pens were sanitized. All the other facilities and restaurants should follow their system.

Great experience! I loved making an appointment. Friendly service, knowledgable staff.
Excellent help! I had waited 2 months to get in. It was an easy place to get to and not much traffic being south of town and right off of 61. People were very nice and I got in and got done promptly. My only complaint is about all the documentation that I was told to bring, which took awhile to find, and they probably only looked at half of it. In addition, the form I completed asked questions such as my parents birth place. This was not a request per the information listed online. I am glad that is done. I did not want to be turned away not having the correct documentation and then have to come back in another month or two. Thank you very much!!’

Driver's License Renewal Before I went to my 11 a.m. appt to renew my license, I went on your site that said it would speed up time at the renewal site, so did, and filled out everything about me, name, address, phone, etc., then it asked for my checking account number and router number and I gave it and it said the price will be $32, so I hit the next button and it said my application is complete and my new license will be sent to me in 6 to 8 days and no need to go to the renewal Woodbury location. I thought that was really funny so went to Woodbury location and told her what happened and she said no, the County will not ask for that information but she tried her computer to do something, then left and came back and said yes, what you did online is right and you don't have to do anything here. She said it was something brand new that she wasn't even told about. Now I am still worried that I won't get my license, as I checked my bank account and the $32 hasn't been withdrawn. I don't want to go through six more weeks of waiting for an appt so sure hope I am going to get my license in the mail shortly. I am worried I"m not going to get it and have to start rom scratch again. Even Woodbury was surprised, as nobody told them.

Enhanced DL Everyone was friendly and the process was quickly done. The setting up of a appointment for these time consuming items is well with the effort put forth. In the future it would be nice to be able to set appointments for some of the services.
Entry door The center seemed to do quite a bit of prevention as far as virus spread. One thing came to mind right away is the entry door that everyone had to touch. Since it was not automatic door, people need to clean their hands right after entering to the room. A sanitizer dispenser next to the inside door would be helpful. One outside the door would be good too. If there was one already, put it at a location that people will see and will use it.

My only disappointment was there is a service fee for using a credit card which I was not aware of until I needed to pay. It wasn’t much but I would have brought a check or cash had I known ahead of going to the appointment. I hope they continue to use the appointment system. It worked really well.

License renewal experience Would give zero stars if I could. Showed up for my appointment made back in May (first available) to find out that systems were down and that they couldn’t process anything. No recommendation for when or how I could renew my expired license. Just told that I should reschedule. Hard to do when there are no appointments to request. Ignore sure what I will be doing to get my license renewed at this point as you all have made it damn near impossible.
Great experience! They have their process down to a science with added covid precautions. I was expecting a stressful experience and it was amazing! This was my first time at the Woodbury office although I have been to other locations in Washington county. 12/10 would recommend.

Why no email update when canceling appointments? Review of Stillwater Service Counter 8 I had an early appointment to renew my license (which took weeks to schedule) and when I arrived I was told that the system was down, because of hurricanes in the south. I can be understanding of that, but my upset is that we didn't receive an email, letting us know they were canceling appointments. I had to get my children up early and bring them to daycare early, to have a cancelled appointment. *Note: I did not make it into the facility in Stillwater- I was updated at the door and left.
A confusing runaround So much rigamoral to FINALLY get this filed. Looked up what to do online, was directed to go to our county office, went to county office in Forest Lake, was directed to set up an appt, set up the appt and waited a week, went to appt and found I had to go to Stillwater, went to the Stillwater county facility on Hwy 36 and was directed to go to the Washington court house down the road. Grrrr

Quick and easy Went in for my first state ID ever and had an awesome experience. The attendee was super friendly and he processed everything fast! Can’t wait to get it.
Short wait Was greeted nicely at door and given clear directions. Waited just a few minutes as clerk finished with someone else. Then the clerk cleaned the counter and area around his window. Diego greeted me and assisted me with the paperwork. Done in 10 minutes.

Prefer the Reservation I can’t think of a trip to the DMV that has ever gone more smoothly or more efficiently. No waiting for hours on end. I really valued the check in process. The separate chairs devoted to certain counters, and the efficiency with which I could pre-apply and simply come in to finish my renewal.

DL Appt The person at Counter #9 was very helpful. This is not about her level of service. At no point, throughout the process did the system tell me that I needed to take a written test before the license would be given. Besides being an archaic rule, not knowing in advance resulted in a wasted appointment and a messed up morning. Please fix your website so it accurately reflects the process.
Efficient The system was down when i went in for my apt., but i rescheduled for later that evening. I got a called to go in 30 min later that the system is up and running. I was able to go in and was in nd out in 30 mins. Staff were friendly and efficient.

The person who helped us is wonderful I wish I knew her name - she has worked there for years a couple weeks ago she helped with my sons passport and then Thursday we were in for my daughters- she is so kind , knowledgeable patient. Thank you !
Patient and helpful! Review of Woodbury Service Counter 3 I recently stopped in to renew my license and every employee there from the person who greeted me to the lady that helped me renew my license was so incredibly patient, kind, friendly, and helpful. They answered all of my questions and guided me through the process of renewing my license patiently and kindly. The DMV is proverbially dreaded however my experience here was everything but. I'm so appreciative of the staff there for making my experience so great!

Long Wait I am in favor of having to make an appointment to go to the DMV. It made the process of waiting to get to see a person at the counter much easier. However it took about 6 weeks to get an appointment time. Perhaps more locations are needed statewide as lines at DMV locations are long everywhere.
receptionist in the hall area The receptionist in the hallway checking people in is way too loud and needs to tone things down. She was very loud inside the acutual desk areas. She was very distracting.

He also waited patiently while I called my husband to get our insurance info. He was very nice and patient with us. The setup is nice and we were called right away at our appointment time. Thanks!!

Quick, Safe Service I was in and out of the service center in less than 15 minutes. I made an appointment, had the proper documents and the employee took fantastic care of me!
Not great clean for covid which is great! Had an appointment because online it looks like you need one but theyre taking walk-ins. Went in for a title transfer but it wouldn't go through or something. The woman helping me didn't know what was going on and when she tried to call for help she didn't get any. Told me to come back in a few weeks and try again basically. At least she gave me a paper to excuse my expired tabs that I cant update until I have the title.
Excellent I went to renew my driver’s license and was very pleased with how quick and easy it was!! The reason why it was quick and easy was because I went to the website first knowing with Covid-19 that they would have different or restricted procedures. So I scheduled an appointment and on the day of the appointment I was in and out in less than 15 minutes! Staff was so friendly and made the experience pleasant!! Thank you!

Drivers license. Excellent service. Well satisfied. That includes Antoinette Milashius.
Misleading The appointment we scheduled was to take the knowledge/written test for my sons permit. When we arrived at the center we were told that the appointment we made was for the deputy registrar. We were ts that we should have made out appointment through the state not the county. Now we have to wait another month in addition to the 5 months we already had to wait. I understand the mistakes on my part. Please make the descriptions more clear about what the centers have the ability to test for.

Exceptional Staff at License Center I have always been impressed with the Stillwater license team and when I made my recent appointment for Forest Lake I didn’t know what to expect - especially with the added complication of COVID rules. Without exception this team was also as gracious, efficient and helpful as I have always found the Stillwater team. Nice job all around ladies! I actually LIKE to go to the License Bureau because my experiences have been so great the brighten my day. I @m proud to pay taxes to help support such great employees! Way TO GO WA county!

Real ID Process Review of Forest Lake Service Counter 11 As always, the employees at the Forest Lake DMV were friendly and efficient. I was in and out in 15 minutes. My only concern would be; With the large backlog of appointments, why were only 3 of 11 windows being used? Even with social distancing, 6 stations could have easily been used. You're never going to get caught up that way.

Passport Renewal Got my passport photo taken and was given a thorough explanation of the current renewal process from a very helpful, pleasant person!
Friendliest Staff Ever! In the past, I've dreaded going in for a license renewal. My questions were always dumb or answered with eye rolls. Not this time - I was blown away by the excellence of the staff! The staff out in the hallway checking people in was extremely helpful in answering my questions, super cheerful, and engaged with not only me, but the other customers coming in. Inside the office, social distancing was enforced and extreme cleaning measures were taken. My needs were met easily, quickly, and with smiles. I cant say enough about the great experience I had! I hope the staff know how much they're appreciated during these difficult times, especially when it's hard to carry on with a good attitude - they all did and were wonderful!

License renewal My license renewal appointment with Washington County went very smooth. They followed all covid-related guidelines and got me in early as well. Friendly, helpful, and patient staff made my visit absolutely seamless.
Fantastic! We went to renew my daughters passport. From start to finish the process was so smooth. A lot of places aren’t renewing minor passports. When I called, the person on the phone was knowledgeable and friendly AND an actual human answered the phone versus other locations that put you straight to voicemail. After that call, I got a confirmation email and many other reminder emails in the weeks prior to the Appt. The day of the Appt, I got a personal phone call/voicemail reminder with specific instructions down to how many checks need to be written. When we got to the building, the woman was extremely welcoming even while she was helping other customers. Eventually another woman came and worked with her and she was also very pleasant. I have never had a dmv/passport Appt go as pleasant as it did yesterday and I would prefer driving to Cottage Grove next time I have a renewal!

Change of address for my real ID license After waiting for my appointment for 3 1/2 months, went in for a change of address and brought the information per phone scheduler. Was told it wasn't adequate for change of address and told to come back another time with different items . My daughter was also there and was able to obtain a change of address with the same information. They recommended buying a fishing license for the additional information needed. After we exited the building she relayed this. I returned and was fortunate to have someone else (Kate) who was extremely helpful in allowing me to get a change of address in this manner. Unfortunately the first service agent was either uninformed or not interested in helping.
Awful Experience. Waited weeks for the appointment - researched and filled out every possible form I could ahead of time, had all my paperwork in order, and felt more prepared than I ever have at the DMV. Had 3 things to get done - walked out with NONE of them achieved. Two of the items required additional information/signatures that were not documented anywhere (and was told this by the staff assisting me), and they could not look up information on the 3rd item because the MN DNR site was down. This meant that after waiting for weeks to get in, I left with nothing, had to acquire more information from sellers that don't even live in the State anymore, and had to make another appointment for 7 weeks away. I called the DNR upon return to my house and even their representative stated that the way 2 of my items were handled was not correct, and that the staff at Stillwater should have called the DNR to clarify them - as well as to see why the system was down. He stated that their system was down for 10 minutes, and could have been easily addressed if I would have known to wait. VERY disappointed as I will now likely be riding "illegally" on state trails until the end of the season (will keep my paperwork and record of upcoming appointment in my vehicle). I just wanted to do the "right" thing - thoroughly prepared for it - and came out empty handed and VERY frustrated. If there was a "0" star rating, or a negative star rating, that would more accurately reflect how this went.
Susan L
Dissappointing It took two months to get appointment just to change our address on our drivers license. Once there, appointment wasn't kept to 9:00 but at least fifteen minutes later. Person at counter did not provide adequate explanations about the different types of drivers license, nor did she ask for the papers that I was suppose to have with that I was unaware of. Now I have to do this again. Frustrating. Also, she gave incorrect information about passports.
Martha W

Driver's License Renewal Not impressed with the experience. Resident of Stillwater, but couldn't get an appt until 9/5 at Forest Lake office, Stillwater office booked beyond their current appt calander. Had an appt for 2PM, ton of people waiting, which I was told were walk ins, which according to online info wasn't available. I Was told that I could have "walked in" at Stillwater license center, which I believe was incorrect. Clerk was surprised I had an appt, but they did put me ahead, but still had to wait for other people to finish up their business. Took 50 minutes to finish my simple renewal. Totally unprofessional in my opinion. I know it's a different business climate these days, but better operational procedures are expected.
Joseph M
Scheduled License Renewal My license expired the day after the pandemic was declared and with the extension the government gave I was in no hurry to renew. when i made my appointment to schedule the renewal I was surprised how long the wait would be to go to Oak Park Heights DMV but understood the reason. Before my appointment I received emails from the DMV reminding me of the appointment which was helpful including one the day before the appointment. Upon arrival there was a very nice lady outside the offices welcoming me to the DMV and checking me in. My appointment was at 10am and I was in at 10:02am and had a very delightful lady go through the process with me and by 10:15am I was out the door with the process completed. I was very impressed as I left the person who assisted me was out spraying the area where I was and the eye exam area. The DMV should be very proud of the Oak Park Heights location!!!

drivers licence renewal In early May 2020 I scheduled an appointment to get a new drivers licence since I have a new address. Earliest appointment was August 5th. I arrived on time and was informed computer system was down, and could not process request. check in asked for name and phone number and they would call to re schedule appointment. I new better that I would not receive a phone call so I asked for woodbury location phone number. I am still trying to get in to DMV. What a big joke how incompetent state run DMV is. I know you already know that since it has been in the news a lot about major issues at DMV. Very disappointing obviously. spending millions of tax payers money and DMV has incompetent management.
Unfriendly Review of Stillwater Service Counter 13 We are a military family and I wanted to get my new ID for the state of MN as we moved here on my husbands military orders. I traveled 40 minutes to come to the service center to get a MN enhanced ID. I completed all of the forms that I was directed to do online and had all of the required documents with me for the appointment. As I walked up to the window I was informed that she didn't need the confirmation that I have handed her, she wanted to see the test confirmation that I took a written test. No where on any of my paperwork was there a note that I needed to take a written test to receive a drivers license in the state of MN. I have had drivers licenses in 6 states due to being a military family and I have never had to take a test to receive a license. She handed me a card with a number to call and walked away from the window. I asked for confirmation that I had to take a test and her response from down the hall because she was no where near the counter anymore was that 75% of states require a written test to be taken in order to receive a license. No military family exception, nor a simple comment, I am sorry that you weren't informed this ahead of time. Such a bad experience.
Stefan A
Smooth operation Everything was as scheduled and smooth. I resolved what I was there for quick!
Update drivers license Excellent
License Our address is our PO Box because we do not get mail delivery in Marine. But if you want a REAL ID-compliant driver's license you have to show up with 2 forms of ID with your street address. Problem - if your main address is your PO, and your bills (like XCEL, etc) come to your PO and don't list your street address, what do you do? Even our property tax statement has our PO. It also has our street address listed but because it's not our mailing address, Washington County would not accept it. Our bank kindly sent over a statement with my name and street address....not good enough. Three attempts yesterday, and 40 minutes later, I walked out WITHOUT a license. One size does NOT fit all.

License Renewal Although it took me a while to book an appointment on-line, the actual appointment went very well. I was impressed how smoothly everything went. I arrived, was checked in promptly, and moved quickly to the counter. From arrival to completion, it could not have taken more than 15-20 minutes. It was the best experience I have had at this license center. I appreciate all the effort the employees at this site put in to make this a good and efficient experience in challenging times.

Best license renewal experience ever! Wanted to get an enhanced license with my renewal. Expected a frustrating experience. Other than having to make an appointment two months in advance, it was no problem. Very efficient flow in the service area benefited by the two greeters and the photographer who took my picture while the counter agent did the paper work. Minimal waiting time, took me in before my scheduled appointment and was walking out the door with my enhanced license before the time of my scheduled appointment. Thank you to everyone who helped!

Excellent Service! Hello. I'm so pleased to offer this evaluation. I'm sorry that I don't know the name of the woman who helped me but she was unbelievably courteous and helpful. She apologized for making me wait, yet I was actually an hour early--my fault. Despite that, she still was able to complete the service before the original 2pm appointment even "started." She very conscientiously sanitized the work area before and after I approached. Give that woman a BONUS is all the more I can say. She was just terrific. TERRIFIC!!! She has dark hair, maybe chin length. Younger than me (I'm 67). Thanks again!
lic. renewal The people at the door were very nice, despite having to deal with walk ins that seemed upset. Person who did my license and other person who did photo were very good, and for my short wait, I did notice that everyone took part in making sure everything was clean. very good job all.

Great job! It took me 2 months to find an appointment date. I was nervous with not only Covid but with the new “real id “ requirements, I brought ever document and more, I have not been able to get a duplicate social security card. I was told to mail SS my drivers license or passport to them for a new one. So I was lucky, the form online for DL renew told me what forms were excepted. I waited a few minutes past my appointment time and was directed to the office. They had the set up perfect! I felt safe and comfortable. The rep that truly helped me with all the requirements was fantastic and calming. She helped look thru the papers I brought and found everything I needed. Thank you very much!

Poor Service and Unclear Scheduling Review of Forest Lake Service Counter 1 My daughter wanted to take the permit test so I scoured the internet to find a place to schedule her. I finally found somewhere that was scheduling 2 months out. I chose “instructional permit” as the reason for our appointment and received multiple reminders for the appointment. When we arrived there was one person working there and when I told her we had an appointment for a permit test she said, rudely, “No, you had an appointment to talk to me; you need to do it on the state website.” I truly didn’t understand as she didn’t explain anything to me and was very short with us. I attempted to have her explain it more thoroughly and she said that the reason they have “instructional permit” as a choice for your appointment is that if you pass the test you can come there to get your permit. It really is a shame as I’m sure we weren’t the only ones to come in there thinking we would walk out with a permit in hand (maybe why she was rude to us?). And I totally understand that all of this Covid stuff is crazy for everyone but please, Washington County, if you do not offer certain services, please make it very clear on your website to avoid more people having to drive over an hour each way to leave empty handed. Thank you!

Excellent Custer service Always a pleasure to visit this center, Two separate representatives to me attended at different windows (7 and 10) and both gave great care and attention.
Great, quick service I went in to get a REAL ID. I made an appointment. I was greeted when I arrived, shown where to go, wait one minute and then was helped. I was leaving 5 minutes later.

Renew drivers license I wanted to get an enhanced license. I didn’t have the proper documents for my appointment. I was not told at that time that I had another option of just renewing my current expired license and just get a new passport. So I went back to my house an hour away to retrieve the proper documents and return. I still did not have a proper marriage certificate as it didn’t have the seal. Now I’m upset and said I’m not coming back a third time. That was when I was told the other option. That’s what I did. I also got a photo taken for a new passport. But I really dislike the way I was handled when I first arrived. The lady was uncaring and not helpful she must have been having a ruff day

Real ID process was fast and efficient! The Real ID process was fast and efficient! I was able to pre-fill out my paper work online and easily select the identification papers I would need to bring with me to the appointment. Once at the appointment, I was there for less than 10 minutes because I had all the correct paperwork, the clerk knew what she was doing and I was done before I knew it! The one area that was challenging was how far scheduling was. I scheduled my appointment nearly 2 months out, however I kept checking back and eventually was able to reschedule sooner due to a cancellation. I would recommend filling out your info online - it makes it easy on you and the clerk!

Amazing service! I hope this is the new way of going to the DMV! I made an appointment arrived a few minutes early Was called in at my scheduled time and went directly to the window to be assisted I was in and out in 15 minutes with my new license being mailed to me. There was no tense waiting for your number to be called and you did not have an audience of 25 or more behind you as you conducted yoyr business. I could also hear better as there were nit 25 conversations going on behind me. I hope this is the process of the future AFTER Covid!

Renewal of Driver's License I arrived at my appointment time and was immediately directed to the station assigned to me. I had pre-applied on line so it went very quickly. I was very pleased with the service.
Appointments mean nothing The woman I worked with was very helpful. However, had I known that making an appointment meant absolutely nothing, I would’ve bypassed that instead. I had an appointment for 12pm and didn’t get in to work with someone until almost 12:30. It turns out that two other people that did not have appointments got in before me because they were “waiting in line first.”
Mixed review Snarkier than necessary. We understand employees are very backed up, but the average person will not wait 3 months to get to their scheduled appt and shouldn't be chastised for being a walk in. Too many signs up to read them all. Wait times were really not bad, but feel like we need to bow down to the powers that be at the DMV

couldn't have been easier! while it took much effort to make an appointment, once we had one, everything went smoothly. emails from the county advised us to do prelim work online and once we got there, we were done within minutes.
Lolita S
Very dissatisfied.I will now have to make a new appointment, I hope in the future a more efficient and less confusing system will be enforced . In the letter I received it. requested just 4 items, I had filled out the form online. It did not list my marriage license as a requirement. I did bring it with me. It was not accepted even though it was signed by all witnesses and an officiant. My son is waiting for a call from Ramsey Cty to get a copy of the original certificate issued 68 years ago. This seems wasteful and time consuming, time and money not well spent for our state. I will not have to drive to Forest Lake from Oakdale again. Many people have had similar problems so I thought I was prepared to get my license. I got the same answer, no license today.

Passports Made appts for my family to get passports - two renewals and two new passports. Quick and easy process!! The clerk was incredibly helpful and pleasant, and made the process smooth and easy for all of us. Thank you!!
Apply for Real ID Made appt. online. Was able to get right in. Went very smoothly.
Service Fine, but...... I went to get a real ID. I loved the woman I worked with. I didn't have a certain document I needed, so she allowed me to go home to get it, even though they closed very soon after. I came back with the proper document, only to discover that the SSN number on that doc didn't match the one they had on file. What?? All that effort to get this doc I needed, yet they couldn't process it because the numbers didn't match... I didn't have my SSN card either, which complicated things even more. I KNOW my SSN number pretty well, so I'm not sure why they didn't match up. Either way, I still have to go through this whole process over again at another date. Grateful to the woman who assisted me and was so sweet the whole time. Even as I started getting upset.

Tabs and Title Transfer Phil the Supervisor was extremely helpful in assisting me to navigate the application, documents needed and charge so that I could drop it in the drop off site near me. Then Molly at Woodbury Center called me to clarify and worked with me to pick up the new license and tabs. Both were so helpful and made the process so much easier! I then was at the CG Service Center for my Passport application and Colleen was amazing! It was painless and quick! I truly appreciate the great customer service given especially in this new "normal" of COVID. So helpful when you have customer service oriented staff! Thank you!
Sandra K
Easy and quick I had an appointment to get my drivers license renewed and decided to get Real ID. I arrived at the Woodbury location about 10 minutes early. I was called to my window (early). Got my picture taken and did the eye exam while she worked on the paperwork that I had brought. WEnt back to my window and a few more questions - then I paid and was back in my car by 2 minutes after 5! Easy - everyone was friendly - well organized - well oiled machine! Thank you Washington County!

Drivers License Upgrade Went to WC Forrest Lake Service Center to upgrade my DL to the Real ID. The Deputy at counter 7 (sorry didn’t get her name) was wonderful. Polite, professional and efficient. Made the experience go well and quickly even when my glasses fogged up under my mask while doing the eye exam and I had to start over. Good job and thanks to her and Washington County for the excellent way thus process was handled in these trying times. 👍 Five Big Stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Tara D
Waiting area It was a little disheartening to have scheduled an appt., check in, be sent to a back corner then be repeatedly over looked by staff. At least four people who came in after me who also had appts at the same time as I did were asked to come up to a counter. No one made eye contact with me or asked who was next. The numbered seats made no difference to the counter staff. The check in person finally noticed I hadn't been taken care of and sent me over to someone.

Drivers License renwal I made an appointment OnLine 2 months ago, since all apt times before that were taken. I was told Woodbury was not taking walkins. When I arrived there were not many people were there that needed help. When I left 4 or 5 workers did not have anyone to help. This upset me, as I'm sure many people are not aware they can walk in. How sad we all have to go through the long waiting when people available to help.
Great Service - Forest Lake Forest Lake really has their process down so everything went very smoothly. Reception and Counter 7 staff were very nice and helpful.

Fastest, most efficient DMV experience ever I've never had a quicker and more efficient experience in a DMV. The "triage" at the front door moved me right along to where I needed to be. The wait was short. Everything was nicely sanitized, so I felt safe throughout the experience. There was no question about where to go or which line to use. There was no long wait. I sincerely hope that this becomes the new normal after we are done with COVID.
So easy to get a Real ID through Washington County I was pleasantly surprised as to how fast and simple it was to get my license renewed and get the real ID. Steps: Filled out proper forms online; made copies of exactly what was needed for my appointment (brought both utility bill and two credit card statements along with my passport; arrived early; total process took less than 20 minutes. Impressive social distancing and cleanliness in the License Center. The employees were also friendly, making a new experience with Covid guidelines non-stressful.

Molly Was Wonderful! Review of Woodbury Service Counter 5 I kind of goofed up where I needed to go and what I needed to do to get my MN Driver's License. Sorry folks, the Website is very confusing when one moves to MN from another state and needs to get a new MN license. I couldn't find anywhere on the Website that stated that there are only 3 places to take the knowledge test. Anyway, I went to Woodbury thinking I could take the test there but that wasn't going to happen. Anyway, I had my paperwork for my new car registration and Molly was able to take care of it. She also wanted to check the paperwork I planned to use to get my Real Id. Molly helped me wonderfully so I knew what I need to do to now get my new license. Thanks, Molly!

Appointment for an EDL renewal. It took awhile to get an appointment to renew my license but it was definitely a good experience! A short wait for an open window and then in and out in 15 minutes with an eye test and new picture.
Sensitivity training I know the dmv has a horrible reputation and this place held those very low standards in place. I overheard a conversation with another customer and a different worker that shook me. She was genuinely not nice to this man in any way. She was not kind but not even considerate to him as a human being. My worker took about 3 times as long as normal because the system kept restarting. At least the place was clean and running on time due to scheduled appointments.
Renewing my drivers license In and out in under 15 minutes because I made an appointment and pre-applied. Painless process.

Great reception and services I am amazed by the reception, COVID related care and the professional services provided by the staff.
Not my favorite place The center was clean and extremely regulated. I had to wait two months for my appointment and still wasn't able to get done what I needed to. It was time consuming and disappointing. The paperwork I received was not accurate and the staff member told me that she doesn't know why they keep sending out that paperwork because it is wrong. Frustrating. Honestly, the worst part about going to this center and all the other ones that I've been to (except Pine City) is that the staff seem impatient, annoyed, calloused, and virtually uncaring about helping the customers. They can be downright rude and unkind.

However this is nothing less than I would expect from Washington County. Good job.

Standard DL renewal I arrived at my scheduled time. I was immediately directed to window 11. The attendant was effective accurate and efficient in processing my application. I was finished and out the door in 10 minutes. Very good experience.
Communication is poor The people at the Forest Lake site were wonderful to work with. They are not the subject of this review. The subject is the fact that nowhere in the website nor in the confirmation or reminder emails did it mention that Washington county does not do testing. We waited two months for these appointments only to be told at the door that we would need to go to Ramsey county to test. Not everyone has the flexibility in their schedules to set up multiple appointments during the rare open spots.

In Person Process for Enhanced Driver's License Everything went well when I met 1 on 1 with the agent to go over my forms to get signed up for the enhanced driver's license. In previous years I was able to look at my picture after it was taken but this time I was not because the agent said it couldn't be done with their new equipment. I feel that it would help other people like me, if this feature could be added, as I like my photo from 4 yrs ago better than this photo (I also saw on the paperwork for my new photo is that the picture was taken a lot closer, than the previous photo 4 years ago, so that was probably the main reason I didn't like the photo and also, that I didn't smile much... so now I'm stuck with this photo for 4 more years!) Also, for all the new plexiglass counter areas (I think there were 8 or 9 counters), I was a little disappointed that there weren't anymore than 2 customers at a time... maybe if more customers at 1 time were able to get licenses renewed, etc., than it wouldn't have taken so long to get an appointment online! But, as I'm remembering, maybe it was done this way, because there is only 1 way to get to the counters & the same way is used to exit the "counter" areas. Overall, I would say that the process to get the license renewed went very smooth and fast.
