Check out wait times at your Michigan Secretary of State offices

Secretary of State wait times grow across much of Michigan

Getting a driver’s license or renewing your plates is taking longer at the 43 busiest branches in the state during the first seven months of 2019 in Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s first term. Note: March was excluded because most branches did not have data for that month. Use the search box to find the office nearest you.
