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.

Michigan Car Title Transfers

The title is by far the most important document associated with the sale of a vehicle, whether it is from a dealership or a private seller. If you are the buyer and receiver of the car in question, you must be absolutely sure that you receive the car title at the end of the transaction. This is the document that proves that you are the legal owner of the vehicle. Thus, it is crucial that you have it in your possession. Nevertheless, there are some forms that are often associated with transferring title. Odometer readings, for example, are required when one party passes the title to the other, so that there is record of the condition of the vehicle at the time of sale.
