How do I renew my mechanic certification license?

Agency: State

There are two options for renewing your mechanic license: online or by mail.

To renew online, you will need:

  • Your preprinted mechanic renewal application
  • The PIN printed in the upper-right corner of the application
  • The last five digits of your Social Security number
  • A valid Discover, MasterCard, Visa or electronic check

To renew by mail, return your completed renewal application form and check or money order to: 

Michigan Department of State
Business Licensing Section
Lansing, Michigan 48918

Please note: You cannot renew online if more than 60 days has passed since your mechanic license expired (the license expiration date is found in Box 4 of your mechanic license renewal application).
