    Renewing Your Driver Education Instructor Certificate

    Renewing Your Driver Education Instructor Certificate  

     

    Instructors have two convenient options for renewing:
     

    Online Renewal

     

    Renewal by Mail

    Note:  You cannot renew online if more than 30 days have passed since your instructor certification expired.  (The expiration date is found in Box 2 of your instructor certificate renewal application.)

     

    Note: Renew before the expiration date shown in Box 2 on your preprinted renewal application to avoid having to reapply.

             
    Have your instructor certificate renewal application and a valid Discover, MasterCard, Visa or electronic check information.   Fill out the enclosed instructor certificate renewal application as instructed. Make any updates as necessary. Some updates may require additional documentation.
             
    Click here to go to the online Driver Education Instructor Renewal System. Or, from www.Michigan.gov/sos, click on "Driver License and State ID" and "Driver Education." The link to the online system is in the center of the page.   Pay with a check or money order made out to "State of Michigan."
             
    Follow the screen prompts to complete your application.   Return your completed application and payment to: Department of State, Licensing Unit, Lansing, MI 48918
             
    Pay with Discover, MasterCard, Visa or electronic check.   Failure to fill out the form correctly and completely may delay or prevent your license renewal.
             
    A confirmation e-mail will be sent after you submit your application.      
             
    If there are any problems with your application, the Business Licensing Section will contact you by mail.      

     

    The Department of State mails a renewal application, Form DES-015R, Renewal Application for Driver Education Instructor Certificate, to all licensed instructors about 60 days before their expiration date.  (The expiration date can be found in Box 2 of your instructor certificate renewal application.)

     

    If a renewal notice has not been received within 30 days of the current expiration date, the instructor should contact the department's Licensing Unit at licensing@michigan.gov or (888) SOS-MICH (767-6424).  A instructor certificate must be renewed biannually.


    Your new certificate should arrive in the mail within three weeks after your application has been processed.

     

    When you receive your new instructor certificate, post it prominently where customers can see it.
