Secretary of State
All Secretary of State offices reopen June 1. To protect staff and public health, offices will only provide services by appointment, and only offer critical services that cannot be completed online, by mail or at a self-service station.
Advance appointments become available six months ahead of time. Same-day appointments become available 24 hours before appointment time. Many transactions can be completed from home by mail or using online services.
**NOTE: Gov. Whitmer issued an executive order to temporarily extend the expirations of all Michigan driver’s licenses, state IDs and vehicle registrations through July 31. A similar order was issued regarding watercraft registrations.
In the Department of State License Plate Store, you'll find a showcase of attractive license plates that should please just about anyone.
"Plate It Your Way" is an online service that allows you to check for the availability of a personalized plate before you visit a branch office.
The License Plate Store also provides information about disability plates and parking placards as well as historical and collector plates.
The International Registration Plan (IRP) is a program for licensing commercial vehicles in interstate operations among member jurisdictions. All of North America is included in the IRP, except for Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico and the Canadian Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
