Failure to renew your Michigan car registration on time will result in a $10 late fee. In the event that your registration has been expired for more than six months, a 24-month renewal fee will be charged. To avoid these late fees, renew car registration before it expires. You can do in person, online or by mail.
If renewing online, have the PIN from the renewal notice on hand to enter the system.

Even though the state of Michigan is not a member of an interstate traffic violation compact, such as the Driver License Compact (DLC) or the Non-Resident Violator Compact (NRVC), it may still report a violation to your home state, while certain traffic offences may be reported to the Michigan SOS Driver License and State ID Department.
The Michigan Secretary of State follows a point system to track traffic violations and their corresponding penalties. Points are added to your driving record which could result in a suspended driving license. Keep in mind that not all traffic citations result in points being added to your driving record and that different violations are assigned different point values.
