Michigan Motorcycle License

Ready to take your new motorcycle for a spin? There are a few things you need to complete before seeking your motorcycle driving license or endorsement in Michigan. Select from the options below to get started.

1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many SOS related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. In addition to assistance in preparing official forms, the value added services and products you will receive include a comprehensive Easy Guide™ containing information relevant to your service needs; 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the SOS in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local SOS.

3: Via a SOS office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local SOS office. Varying SOS offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the SOS closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your SOS allows you to make a personal appointment.
