New Grace Period for License Plate Tabs

Secretary Johnson applauds new 30-day grace period for placing tabs on license plates
Motorists can hop online to right up to last minute

On March 14, 2018, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson applauded legislators for passing and Gov. Rick Snyder for signing legislation that gives millions of Michigan motorists a 30-day grace period to affix their tab after renewing their vehicle’s registration.

House Bill 4535, sponsored by Rep. Curt VanderWall of Ludington, was signed into law yesterday and assigned as Public Act 64 of 2018 today with immediate effect.

“Thanks to this new law, if you renew online or by mail at the last minute, you don’t have to worry about getting a ticket for not having received your tab yet,” Johnson said. “The grace period means you can renew from home up to the deadline. So hop online, not in line, to with Print‘N Go technology. It’s painless!”
