STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. – The Secretary of State office in Sterling Heights will be closed for several days this month as it moves to a new location that features a larger floor plan for customers and staff, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson announced today.
The office at 34208 Van Dyke Ave. will close for good at the end of the business day on Friday, May 11 and staff will complete the moving process on Friday, May 18. The office will reopen at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 21 at 7917 19 Mile Road. The new location is about 4.5 miles north of the original office at the intersection of 19 Mile Road and Van Dyke Avenue and will provide easier access for motorists.
Customers of the new office will also benefit from 24-hour access to a Self-Service Station, which provides a convenient self-service option for customers renewing their license plate tabs.
Office hours remain unchanged: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
"We continue to find ways to stretch tax dollars farther while providing greater convenience for customers," Johnson said. "Residents can do many transactions with us online but when they do need to come in, we hope they will enjoy the features of this new office."
People who need license plates, driver's licenses and ID cards can do business by mail or online at www.ExpressSOS.com. Easy to follow instructions can be found with the renewal notice. Additional services can be done online as well.
