License plates for individually owned vehicles, light trucks and motorcycles typically expire on the owner's birthday and not at the end of the month. The Secretary of State usually mails renewal notices 45 days before your plates expire.
To avoid late fees, verify your expiration date by checking your vehicle registration. If you do not receive a renewal notice, you must renew at a Secretary of State office.
Your Renewal Options
You will receive a license plate tab showing the month and year of expiration. Place the tab on your plate as soon as you receive it.
(Proof of Michigan no-fault insurance is required when renewing by mail.)
