How do I replace a lost Michigan car registration?

Hi, I live in Michigan and I lost my car registration. How do I replace it?

No need to worry! You can replace your vehicle registration by visiting a local Secretary of State branch in person or going on the Michigan Department of State website at
You will need to provide your:
  • License plate number
  • Driver’s license number or state ID
While you’re sorting through your documents, it’s worth looking into your insurance coverage, too. Many people pay too much for their insurance since prices change all the time. The Jerry app can be really helpful for this. It pulls quotes for you from top insurers so you can compare prices and coverages for free in a matter of minutes.
