Michigan SOS Offices Opening Monday By Appointment
Monday, June 1, 2020

Michigan Secretary of State branch offices will be reopening today by appointment only.

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson says the appointments will only be for
essential transactions not available online. This is being done to continue the balance they need to provide critical services and protect public health.

Starting this week, all 131 branch offices in Michigan will be open Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM for appointment only services for transactions. That includes driver licenses and State ID transactions that must be done in person; title transfers; operator, CDL, chauffeur, mechanic and motorcycle testing; and seasonal commercial vehicle renewal.

Branch staff will follow strict health and safety protocols, including wearing masks; standing six feet apart; using desk shields and continuously disinfecting shared or common surfaces. Branch doors will be locked, and each branch will have a greeter to let customers with appointments in at scheduled appointment times.

Anyone scheduling an appointment or receiving an appointment reminder will also be instructed on how to safely attend their appointment. That includes arriving at the appointment alone; wearing a mask or homemade face covering over their mouth and nose; waiting in their vehicle or outside prior to the appointment time and maintaining six feet of distance when announcing themselves and their appointment to staff at the doors.
