Frequently Asked Questions

May 14, 2012

Here are answers to some of the recent most frequently asked law enforcement questions taken this week by the DNR Call Center.
The Call Center is staffed daily, 7 a.m. - 10 p.m., and offers bilingual service in Spanish and Hmong. The number is 1-888-936-7463.

Question 1: How does my spouse get a fishing license in their name, if we buy the husband-and-wife fishing?

Answer: Each individual will have a license in their own name. The license agent will sell the primary license to one individual. After that is sold, the agent will log into the spouse account and provide the spouse license at no cost. The system will prompt the clerk to enter the primary license holder's customer identification number to link the accounts. The system then will print a license in the spouse's name.

Question 2: Why do I have to put a license plate on my ATV (all-terrain vehicle)?

Answer: Effective July 1, 2012, the owners of all ATVs and UTVs registered as public use will be required to furnish and display a rear plate in addition to the 2-side decals furnished by DNR. This change was added after many discussions over the years with various experts and user groups based on surveys and meetings. Plates can be created or purchased by the registered owner, but are not provided by the DNR.

Plate specifications: It must be a minimum of 4 inches in height and 7 1/2 inches wide. It must be white with black lettering a minimum of 1 1/2-inches high with a minimum 3/16-inch stroke. It needs only the four registration numbers and two letters that printed on the registration decal. The owner shall maintain the plate so it is in legible condition. And the plate shall be attached to the rear of the vehicle.
