To make it even easier for you, the Department of State now provides online renewals. It’s simple, fast and convenient. Go to www.michigan.gov/sos, click on Automotive-related Businesses and Information for Repair Facilities. You’ll find the link to the online application at the top of the page.
To use this service, you’ll need:
- Your preprinted renewal application which contains your repair facility number and your PIN (found on the upper-right corner of the preprinted renewal application). Please note: Your renewal application will be mailed to you 60 days prior to your expiration date.
- A valid Discover, MasterCard, Visa or electronic check.
To begin, enter the repair facility number and your PIN. Use the Repair Facility License Information, Contact Information Update, Renewal Questions, Revenue Questions, Finish and Logout links in the upper-left corner of the Web pages to move from one section of the application to another. The Logout link allows you to exit the application at any time – your information will be saved and waiting upon your return. A confirmation e-mail will be sent once you submit your completed application.
If more than 60 days have passed from the expiration date shown in the current expiration box on the preprinted renewal application, you will not be able to renew online. If your repair facility license is currently expired contact the Business Licensing Section at Licensing@Michigan.gov or call (888) SOS-MICH (888-767-6424) for assistance.
Renewing your repair facility license by mail
You may continue to renew your repair facility license by mail. Your renewal application should be returned with the required fee before your expiration date.
