We all know that it can be a nightmare when you simply want to renew your license at the Michigan Secretary of State office.

After two years of preparation, The Michigan Secretary of State's system will see a massive upgrade which is set to launch next month. This new upgrade will allow people to renew or replace an enhanced driver's license or state ID if no new photo is required, view the status of the requested license or state ID, obtain a driving record, add a motorcycle endorsement and more.

With their new self-service stations, you'll be able to renew a standard or enhanced driver’s license or state ID if no new photo required, request a replacement and print out a temporary license or ID, add a motorcycle endorsement to an eligible driver’s license, and sign up on the state’s organ donor registry.

The new system will launch on March 16.

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson:

Customers will now be able to renew or replace their driver’s licenses and IDs at any of our more than 130 new self-service stations across the state, and renew or replace their enhanced licenses and IDs online. We have continuously expanded and improved customer options and service, even during the pandemic, and this upgrade will truly make our operations better than ever.

The Michigan Secretary of State:

The new customer conveniences will be available when a massive upgrade of the department’s driver records system is launched on March 16, following two years of preparation. Branch appointments, online and self-service station transactions will be unavailable from 5 p.m. Thursday, March 11 to 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 16 while the system is brought online.
