Lansing, MI - The special appointments and extended hours for Michigan residents to renew driver’s licenses or state ID cards has expanded to include those licenses and IDs expiring in October, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson has announced.
Last month, Benson announced branch offices would offer the special appointments and extended hours for licenses or IDs that expire between Jan. 1, 2020, and Sept. 30, 2020, and must be renewed in person. Customers can make appointments for between 4 and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday through Sept. 30. To make an appointment, visit Michigan.gov/SOS or call 888-SOS-MICH (767-6424).
“As we mark the midpoint of these special appointments and extended hours to help meet customer needs during the pandemic, we’re happy to be able expand them to serve customers whose licenses and IDs expire between Oct.1 and 31, 2020,” Benson said. “We also want to remind Michigan residents of the important Sept. 30 deadline to renew licenses, IDs and vehicle registrations that previously had their expiration dates extended.”
Under Public Acts 127-129, those with driver’s license, state ID or vehicle registration expirations between March 1 and Sept. 30 have until Sept. 30 to complete their renewals. With that deadline less than three weeks away, drivers who haven’t completed their renewals are encouraged to make a plan to do so immediately.
Many driver’s license and ID renewals also can be completed online at ExpressSOS.com.
Vehicle registration and tab renewals should be completed online at ExpressSOS.com, by mail or at one of the 121 self-service stations located across the state (visit Michigan.gov/SOS for locations). To renew at a self-service station, drivers only need their license plate number and the last four digits of their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or the renewal noticed mailed to them.
