Motor Vehicle

Welcome to the World of the Woodbury County Treasurer site, his deputies and staff. You will find here a knowledgeable, ready to serve group of individuals that staff three departments, all here for the convenience of the residents and taxpayers of Woodbury County.

The Motor Vehicle Division of the Treasurer's Office issues vehicle titles and licenses, registers, collects all vehicle fees for the residents of Woodbury County. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) issues hunting and fishing licenses, and also processes titles and registrations for boats, ATVs, and snowmobiles.

Here are some other services you may or may not be aware of, some already in place, and some in the future.

The Woodbury County Treasurer's offices in Sioux City (Motor Vehicle-Trosper/Hoyt Building) and Anthon are the only treasurer's offices in the state to offer DNR serices.
