Historically, ASE, the National Institute for Automotive Excellence, has provided the Michigan Dept. of State, Business Licensing and Regulation Division with test results for individual technicians in the three (3) categories which require re-certification testing:
Engine Tune-Up/Performance – Auto and Light Trucks
Electrical Systems – Auto and Light Trucks
Brakes and Braking Systems – Auto and Light Trucks
Upon receiving ASE test results the Department of State automatically updated an individual’s State of Michigan Mechanics Certificate in accordance with those results.
Beginning in 2013, ASE discontinued providing the State of Michigan with those results, which now requires the individual enrolled in the ASE program to individually provide the State of Michigan with verification from ASE to obtain the update.
Therefore, those affected may mail “Business Licensing & Regulation Division, 3rd Floor, 430 West Allegan, Lansing, MI. 48918”, fax (571) 335-2810, or email BLRD@Michigan.gov a copy of a valid ASE certificate or verification letter from ASE for updating their Michigan Mechanic Certification. Once updated, a new certificate will be mailed to the address of record at no charge.
