More About Michigan License Plates

Michigan was one of the first states in the nation that started requiring license plates on all automobiles in 1905. It wasn’t until 1910 that the state actually provided the porcelain pates for auto owners, until then people had to supply their own. Today the state issues 2 aluminum plates to every vehicle owner, the one on the rear requiring tags and expiration date. There are two general types of license plates: standard Michigan license plate and specialty plates. Most vehicle owners in the state use the former. On the other hand, specialty plates are issued for vehicles owned by organizations or groups. You can apply for the Michigan license plate you need in-person, via mail or online. Michigan License Plate Lookup can be performed in the same manner too. You can access the license plate or vehicle information you need in person, via mail or online.
