Secretary of State
NOVEMBER 5, 2019
MOHAWK – Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson reminds residents that the Mohawk office has returned to one-day-a-week service instead of two as it adjusts to seasonal business volume.
The office at 3616 U.S. Highway 41 is now open on Thursdays only. Hours remain 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a lunch closure from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The office will be closed Thursday, Nov. 28, for the Thanksgiving holiday. It will reopen for business Thursday, Dec. 5.
Most license plate types can be ordered or renewed online at ExpressSOS.com. Driver’s license permits and registrations for vehicles, motorcycles, snowmobiles or boats may be printed, allowing motorists to drive legally until they get their renewed driver’s license or plate and tab in the mail. Additionally, customers may order a duplicate registration or title, change their address and register to be an organ donor on the website.
The Department of State mails notices to motorists 45 days before their driver’s license or license plates expire to give them ample time to renew. Licenses and plates that expire on a day when state offices are closed, such as a holiday or weekend, can be renewed the following day without penalty.
The Mohawk office opened in January 1999 and is the first full-service Secretary of State office in Keweenaw County.
