Michigan replacing kiosks where drivers can renew plates

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson says her office is replacing self-service kiosks that are unreliable and hard to use.

Benson announced Wednesday that all 93 kiosks across Michigan will be replaced with more user-friendly stations by the end of January. The state also will add 57 machines at branch offices and grocery stores.

The stations let residents renew their registration if they have their license plate number and the last four digits of the vehicle identification number (VIN). A new $3.95 service fee will be assessed for each vehicle renewed at a kiosk.

Motorists also can renew their registration online, by mail or in person at branch offices.

The self-service stations will allow drivers to conduct other transactions once a computer system upgrade is completed in March 2021.
