Do I have to come to Lansing to open an IRP account?

No. IRP accounts may be established in person at the Lansing IRP office or by submitting an application, including all required documents, through the Secretary of State’s CARS e-Services system. If opening an account in person in a business name, the owner of the business must be present.



For more information about IRP or the requirements to open an account, visit our website at and choose the "Other Business Services" option or call the IRP Office at 517-322-1097.
