DRIVER'S AND CAR LICENSES:

Stevenson's Driver's License Bureau is located at 104 E 6th St, next to the public library, across the street from the Post Office. (589-1755). You can buy your Minnesota license plates there. You can also get a copy of the rules of the road to study for your driver's license test.

An examiner gives and scores the written driver's license exam the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursday of each month from 10-11:30am at the Eagles Club, 7 E. 8th St. Use the side door.

Once you pass the written test, take your receipt and your old license from another state to Stevenson's Driver's License Bureau, pay your fees and have your photo taken. Another small town perk - - a fast and friendly license branch!

For those who need a behind-the-wheel test, they are scheduled by calling (320) 762-7808 (long distance number) during business hours on a Monday or Tuesday. While that is the only time you can call, the actual behind-the-wheel exams can be taken on other days.

A short personal note on the Stevenson's Driver's License Bureau:
Where I used to live in Indiana the local city-run license bureau lived up to every bad stereotype of license bureaus; they were slow, inefficient and rude. In contrast I always leave this local branch absolutely thrilled at how fast, efficient and polite they are. It takes them about 60 seconds to process new stickers for your license plate, and I just got a new drivers license from them in about 4 minutes. They know exactly what they are doing and how to do it efficiently.
