CLAYTON, Mo. ( -- To help alleviate some wait times while trying to get the paperwork needed to renew your license plates or driver’s license, some Department of Revenue offices will allow you to make an online appointment.

The Department of Revenue offices at Northwest Crossings in St. Ann and South County in Mehlville will offer online appointments beginning July 1. Click here to make your appointment.

St. Louis County expects online appointments to be available at the Clayton office by mid-July.

Masks will be required for any appointment.

“Due to the state motor vehicle offices’ need for County documents during the COVID-19 pandemic, this is a great way to improve access and reduce wait times,” shared Executive Director of Operations, Mike Chapman.
