Lansing, MI - Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson reminds residents that all Secretary of State offices and the Office of the Great Seal will be closed in observance of Memorial Day on Monday, May 27. Secretary of State Super Centers normally offer Saturday hours but also will be closed Saturday, May 25.
Most license plate types can be ordered or renewed online at ExpressSOS.com. Driver’s license permits and registrations for vehicles, motorcycles, snowmobiles or boats may be printed, allowing motorists to drive legally until they get their renewed driver’s license or plate and tab in the mail. Additionally, customers may order a duplicate registration or title, change their address and register to be an organ donor on the website.
The Department of State mails notices to motorists 45 days before their driver’s license or license plates expire to give them ample time to renew. Licenses and plates that expire on a day when state offices are closed, such as a holiday or weekend, can be renewed the following day without penalty.
License plate tabs also can be renewed at self-service kiosks, many of which are available around the clock. Visit the Branch Office Locator at Michigan.gov/SOS to find a Secretary of State kiosk near you.
With the exception of holidays, offices are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Smaller offices may close for the lunch hour. On Wednesdays, most offices are open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., with those in city centers open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Plus offices and Super Centers are open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays. Super Centers also provide Saturday hours from 9 a.m. to noon.
