House Unanimously Approves Rep. Johnson’s Bill For Two-Year Vehicle Registration
RELEASE|March 25, 2021

Today, State Rep. Steve Johnson’s bill to allow Michigan vehicle owners the option to renew their vehicle registration for up to two years was passed out of the House unanimously.

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 4117 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 and save drivers a trip to SOS office. The state could also see a savings with decreased mailing and administrative costs. Over a dozen other states provide multi-year vehicle registration options.

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

House Bill 4117 now moves to the Senate for further consideration.
