Service with a smile at Reicks Auto License Bureau


Mon, Oct 31st, 2016
Posted in Preston Business Announcements

By Barb Jeffers

Many activities in our daily lives are not necessarily pleasant but have to be done. Such is the case with getting our driver’s license renewed or getting new license plates or tabs. However, stopping by Reicks Auto License Bureau in Preston, Minn., somehow doesn’t seem like such a chore.

One reason may be due to the quick service. People tend to travel a distance to go to Reicks Auto License Bureau rather than stopping in a larger town, due to the fact that the line is usually not as long so you’re in and out faster, but also because of the personal service.

Owners Kurt and Brenda Reicks have been serving the area since 1989. Kurt knows the majority of his customers by name, as does employee Dawn Ristau, and they both flash a smile and say hello as customers walk in.

Kurt says the most common problem he sees in the license bureau is “people forget to bring proof of insurance,” which causes them to make a second trip to the office. Beginning January 2016, anyone who needs tabs or license plates must show proof of insurance. It is taking awhile for residents to remember to bring proof of insurance with them.

Auto license tab renewals can be obtained in person or by mail. A quick three to five day return by mail makes the process quick and easy.

Reicks Auto License Bureau offers licensing for all types of vehicles, including automobiles, boats, ATV’s, four wheelers and snowmobiles.

Many people choose to adorn their vehicle or motorcycle with license plates that have a special meaning to them.

“In Minnesota you can apply for many types of special license plates such as personalized plates, special group license plates, and military honor plates,” according to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website, dmv.org/mn.

There are license plates that have eligibility requirements and most cost more than the standard choices, due to application fees and filing fees associated with them.

“The Minnesota Department of Public Safety offers personalized license plates for passenger vehicles, trucks, motorcycles, and some recreational vehicles,” states the DMV website. In addition to the standard registration fee, there is a $100 application fee and a $10 filing fee for personalized plates. A person can apply for personalized license plates or specialty plates in person or by mail.
