Governor Whitmer signed Senate Bills 876-878, which codify her previous Executive Orders, further extending the renewal dates for driver’s licenses, CDLs, state ID cards and vehicle registrations. Among the extensions outlined in the legislation, those with driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations expiring on or after March 1 have until September 30, 2020 to have them renewed. These acts take immediate effect.
We have confirmed with the secretary of state’s office that the expiration of BFS-4 temporary tags will also be extended through September 30, 2020.
All of the bills were sponsored by Senator Wayne Schmidt, R- Traverse City.
