LANSING (WWJ/AP) – Michigan residents heading south for the winter can renew their license plate registration or driver’s license before they leave. Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said in Monday release that license plate registrations can be renewed for up to six months before they expire.

Driver’s licenses and state I.D. cards can be renewed up to a year in advance.

“Enjoy your time traveling in warmer climates without having to worry about your  license or plate expiring,” Johnson said. “I encourage snowbirds to check their  license and plate expiration dates now to avoid late fees or tickets down the road.”

Renewal can be done online at or in person at any secretary of state branch office.

Customers who have questions may call the Department of State Information Center and speak to a customer service representative at 888-SOS-MICH (767-6424).  For more information about branch office locations, hours and services, visit
