Also note that the 's' at the end of 'https' is required for the links to function.


If you have any questions, want additional information, or need any assistance through this process, please contact us at agr@mt.gov or (406) 444-5400.


You can continue to pay for many MDA services online through MDA's OTC payment system by credit card, debit card or eCheck, and a receipt will be emailed to you. A payment processing fee is charged by the payment system providers and will be applied as follows: credit or debit cards are $1.25 + 1.995% of the transaction amount and eChecks are a $2.00 flat fee. Renewals and submissions are not considered complete until all required information is submitted and your payment is processed.


You are not required to use the new database system and are still able to submit paper renewals. If that is your preference, please allow up to 3 weeks for your paper application to be processed, and your license(s) will be mailed via the United States Postal Service.
