    Titling and Registering a Vehicle

    To find out how to title and register your vehicle, select whether you are buying a vehicle from an individual, a dealership or a family member.

    To drive a vehicle on Michigan roads, it must be properly titled and registered. A title is a legal document recording who owns certain property. Information about the vehicle's model, make, year and license plate is shown on the registration. New Michigan residents must title and register their vehicles without delay.

    To avoid late fees, verify your expiration date by checking your vehicle registration. Most license plates expire on the owner's birthday and not at the end of the month.
