Rep. Johnson introduces bill to create two-year vehicle registration option

Categories: Steven Johnson News

State Rep. Steve Johnson introduced legislation today that would allow Michigan vehicle owners to renew their vehicle registration for two years.

Currently, a vehicle can only be registered for 12 months, or slightly longer if a registration is renewed less than six months before an individual’s birthday.

House Bill 4663 would offer Michigan vehicle owners the option of paying their registration fees up to two years at a time. If a vehicle owner chooses this option, it would decrease the number of registration and tag updates needed for their vehicle. The state could also see a savings with decreased mailing and administrative costs.

“This common-sense idea was initially brought to me by a local resident,” said Johnson, R-Wayland. “Allowing a two-year vehicle renewal period will save Michigan residents time and effort when renewing their vehicle registration.”

House Bill 4663 was referred to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for further consideration.
