The Michigan Department of State is reminding drivers they are at risk of tickets after the license and registration extension ends at the end of the month.

Drivers whose licenses, state ID cards or registrations expired during the COVID-19 pandemic were subject to an extension, but that extension ends on Sept. 30.

For driver's licenses and IDs that need to be renewed in person, Secretary of State offices have been offering special appointments since Aug. 24 and those will still be available through Sept. 30. Those without in-person renewal can renew online or by mail.

They can also go to a self-service station throughout the state.

“I strongly encourage all Michiganders with expiring licenses, IDs or vehicle registrations to act now and avoid late fees or possible tickets,” said Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. “We have done everything we can to support Michiganders during this uncertain time and want to make sure they renew before the expiration extension ends.”
