logoYour online, no-wait Secretary of State

Secretary of State Ruth Johnson announced a major expansion of the online services offered by her office. Available at, the new services are the new online, no-wait Secretary of State.

Thousands more Michigan residents are now able to complete many transactions online that previously required visiting a branch office, including:

  • Renew or replace standard state driver's licenses and ID cards
  • Change their address when they move
  • Order multiple copies of vehicle registrations and titles

The new online system also improves existing online transactions such as renewal plate tabs and watercraft registrations. Now customers can renew all of their vehicles at one time and pay for them at once instead of entering and paying for each plate or watercraft registration individually.

In the first six months, more than 800,000 online transactions have been processed successfully.

To encourage broader use and awareness, the Secretary of State rolled out a low-cost campaign with billboards, radio spots and, of course, online advertisements. The radio spot touts ExpressSOS as "The online, no-wait Secretary of State."
