Starting next month, you’ll be able to renew or replace your enhanced driver’s license or state ID and do a handful of other updates from the comfort of your home.

The Michigan Department of State will launch a new online services system starting March 16, 2021.

New online services at Michigan.gov/SOS will include the following:

Renew or replace an enhanced driver’s license or state ID if no new photo required
View the status of the requested driver’s license or state ID
Request and obtain a driving record
Add a motorcycle endorsement to an eligible driver’s license
Access streamlined business services

New self-service station transactions will include the following:

Renew a standard or enhanced driver’s license or state ID if no new photo required
Request a replacement and print out a temporary license or ID
Add a motorcycle endorsement to an eligible driver’s license
Sign up on the state’s organ donor registry

“Customers will now be able to renew or replace their driver’s licenses and IDs at any of our more than 130 new self-service stations across the state, and renew or replace their enhanced licenses and IDs online,” Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said in a statement. “We have continuously expanded and improved customer options and service, even during the pandemic, and this upgrade will truly make our operations better than ever.”

There are currently 135 self-service stations, and more planned, in branch offices and other locations statewide, including select Meijer and Kroger grocery stores.
