Two Harbors becomes nearest location to renew driver's license for Cook County residents

Cook County residents looking to renew or be issued a Minnesota driver’s license need to do so in Two Harbors for the time being. The closing of Buck's Radio Shack in Grand Marais means there is no longer a driver’s license issuing station in Grand Marais or Cook County.

There are talks of possibly opening a driver’s license issuing station inside the already existing Minnesota Department of Motor Vehicle Registration center located in the Grand Marais Pharmacy. The Grand Marais station’s services currently include title registrations, renewals and transfers, but not the ability to renew or issue driver’s licenses. No timetable or decision has been made on if, or when driver’s licenses will again be accessible for issue in Cook County or Grand Marais. 

The Two Harbors Deputy Registrar and Driver’s License Agent is open Monday through Friday from 8 to 4:30, but are closed from 12:30 to 1 each weekday.
