The Secretary of State’s web page states, “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.”
Most people renewing license plates, driver's licenses and ID cards can do business online at www.ExpressSOS.com or by mail. Instructions can be found with the renewal notice. Additional services can also be done online.
License plate tabs can also be renewed at Self-Service Stations, many of which are available around the clock. For more information, see the Branch Office Locator at www.michigan.gov/SOS to find a Self-Service Station.
