The pandemic has highlighted the importance of making things easier for Michigan constituents. They have taken note of the important part this can play for ease and convenience during these times. It appears that the office and many other government and service organizations will be doing the same well into the future. Here are some of these services which the Michigan Secretary of State’s Office has announced:

Beginning in March, driver’s licenses and state ID cards can be renewed online and at self-service kiosks around the state. Drivers can also add a motorcycle endorsement to their license and request their own driving record online. The 130 kiosks in branch offices, Meijer, Kroger and other grocery stores statewide can also process an ID replacement and allow residents to add themselves to the donor registry. Other online transactions include:

  • Electronic lien and title information instead of paper title documents;
  • a simplified graduated driver’s license program to reduce visits to their office;
  • mechanic testing registration (beginning March 15th for those with a Michigan driver’s license or state ID.

This is good news for many who are high risk for COVID and have been unable to renew their license or ID. And this shows promise for continuing into the future, especially for seniors who may have transportation issues.  This good news, along with the vaccines coming to our rescue, show promise for a brighter and easier time in the New Year.

I hope that you were able to connect with family over the holidays in new and creative ways. Thank heavens for the internet! Wishing you a safe, healthy and peaceful New Year in 2021. Thank you for your readership.
