Calculate registration fees on CARS e-Services.
Michigan law [Michigan Vehicle Code (MCL 257.217(4)] requires dealers to apply for title and registration on behalf of their customers. When a customer needs a new plate, the dealer must calculate the plate fee and record this information on the RD-108, Application for Michigan Title - Statement of Vehicle Sale.
Calculating registration fees on CARS e-Services will minimize plate fee errors, ensuring quicker turn-around time when dealers submit RD-108s. We suggest you bookmark the new website for easy access.
Base Prices and Plate Fee Charts are available on the SOS Web site. If you find you need help calculating a plate fee, call the Department of State Information Center at 1-888-767-6424 for assistance.
