Accessing or Creating an Account
Most functionality in the online services application requires a user account (exceptions: magazine subscriptions, calendar and book purchases).
- During the purchase/application process, do not use your browser's back button to navigate to previous pages. Always use the buttons provided within the webpage itself.
Account Creation and Access
(Click on images to enlarge.)
If the system finds a record with your name and DOB, you will be asked to provide your driver's license number, the last 4 digits of your SSN, or another piece of identifying information.
(Note: The information that can be used in this step in the process is dependent upon what information the department has on file for you. The more complete your profile, the more types of identifying information you can use.)
Enter one of the available pieces of data and click "Continue" to complete account access.
No Account Found
If no account was found, you will have the option to search again or to create a new account.
NOTE: If you have done business with us before and the system does not find your account, please call the department at 701-328-6335. If you create multiple accounts, you may lose bonus points or be unable to renew boat registrations online.
If you still have questions about or problems with accessing or creating an account after reviewing this tutorial, please contact the Department at 701-328-6335 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
