Renewing a disability license plate
Renewing a disability license plate is similar to renewing other types of plates. Disability plates can be renewed at Secretary of State offices by the plate owner or someone living at the owner’s address, by mail, or Online using CARS e-Services. A doctor’s statement is not required with renewals.
Regular renewal fees apply. Proof of Michigan no-fault insurance is required unless your plate renewal notice shows a PIN indicating your insurance company has reported your vehicle as being insured.
If the person who qualified for the disability plate is no longer living, the disability plate must be replaced at time of renewal with a standard plate.
Additional information about disability plates can be found on this page.
