Grace period to end in Michigan for expired driver’s licenses
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Time is running out for Michigan residents who have waited to renew their driver’s license or vehicle registration during the coronavirus pandemic.
Those with an expiration date after March 1 were given a long grace period by the Legislature and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. But that period ends Wednesday and no extension is anticipated.
“I strongly encourage all Michiganders with expiring licenses, IDs or vehicle registrations to act now and avoid late fees or possible tickets,” Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said.
“We have done everything we can to support Michiganders during this uncertain time and want to make sure they renew before the expiration extension ends,” she said.
