Michigan Secretary of State branches - including the St. Clair Shores office - will be closed in two dozen counties Monday, Jan. 6, due to emergency weather conditions while branches in other communities are expected to remain open to serve customers, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said today.
“We are working with local and state agencies to coordinate our efforts to ensure our customers and staff are safe while also providing services where we can,” Johnson said. “And we are still open for business online at ExpressSOS.com for many transactions, including license plate tabs and driver’s license renewals.”
Branches in the following counties are expected to be closed on Monday: Berrien, Branch, Cass, Calhoun, Eaton, Hillsdale, Huron, Ingham, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Lapeer, Lenawee, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St.Clair, St. Joseph, Sanilac, Shiawassee, Tuscola, Van Buren, Washtenaw and Wayne (except for Detroit Super!Center, 3046 W. Grand Blvd., Detroit, which is expected to remain open).
Before heading to a branch on Monday, customers are encouraged to use the Branch Office Locator at http://services.sos.state.mi.us/servicelocator/ to see whether it’s open.
Customers whose license or registration expiration occurred during Monday’s closure will not be charged a late fee if they renew as soon as Secretary of State offices reopen. If renewing by mail, any application postmarked before the expiration date will not be considered late.
Appointments for hearings or driver assessments will be rescheduled.
