Business Hours
     

In addition to the $15 title fee, there is an extra $5 fee for instant title service.  The vehicle owner must appear in person for instant title service.  The owner cannot appoint an agent for an instant title transaction.  If there are two owners of a vehicle, both owners must appear in person for instant title service (see NOTE below for duplicate titles). 

NOTE: For duplicate (replacement) instant title transactions when there are two owners on the title record, only one owner needs to appear and sign the title application.  An  appointment of agent is not needed from the other owner.  Both owner names will appear on the duplicate title.

Every instant title application is unique, but all persons processing a title application must present a Michigan or out-of-state photo driver license or ID card.  Also, the vehicle identification number or hull identification number (for watercraft) is required for every instant title application.

Please check with our Information Center at 1-888-SOS-MICH  (1-888-767-6424) to make sure you have all the correct paperwork before traveling to an instant title branch office.
