Welcome to the Department of State
Vehicle Dealer License Online Renewal System

If you are renewing your vehicle dealer license online, you now have the option to renew for multiple years. You will be prompted to select 1, 2, 3 or 4 years. Note: renewal and dealer plate fees are not refundable.. Simply login to the renewal system using your master license number and PIN, which can be found on the dealer license renewal application you received in the mail. Please note that the system will renew all active licenses. If you do not intend to renew all active licenses, please mail in your application, do not renew online.

To renew online you will need:

  • The master license number and PIN found on your preprinted dealer license renewal

  • A valid Discover, MasterCard, Visa or electronic check.

    Do not renew online if:
  • Your business ownership type has changed. (For example, from individual to corporation.)

  • Your dealer license is expired.

  • You do not intend to renew all active licenses.

    If any of these situations apply, contact the Business Licensing Section at or call
    (888) SOS-MICH (767-6424) for assistance.
