How do I buy it? (Michigan residents)  »

The Recreation Passport is $11 for residents and is valid until the next vehicle license plate renewal date. The proof of purchase is the two tiny "P"s printed at the top and bottom of your license plate tab, as well as the words "Recreation Passport" on your vehicle registration. It cannot be purchased online.

  • Purchase the annual pass when renewing your license plate with the Secretary of State. This is the best time to buy to avoid extra fees.
  • Bring your registration to a Secretary of State branch office at any time to receive a replacement license plate tab. You will be charged an additional $5 fee by the Secretary of State if you purchase outside the usual license renewal time.
  • Purchase a window sticker at a state park or customer service center and place on inside, lower-right side of the passenger window.
