LANSING, Mich. — Friday Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced branch offices would offer priority driver’s license and state ID appointments from Monday, Oct. 5, through Monday, Nov. 2.

These priority appointments will be available from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. They are for Michigan residents who need to get a first-time license or ID, replace (because of loss) a license or ID, or correct (because of a name change or other change) a license or ID.

The appointments will be available for booking Friday afternoon.

“These appointments will ensure customers get the new or replacement driver’s license or state ID they may need as soon as possible,” Benson said. “Prioritizing these appointments is another way we are ensuring continued service to Michigan residents during this pandemic.”

In addition to the priority appointment timeslot, residents also can complete these first-time, replacement or correction transactions, and other limited types of transactions, using the next-day and advance appointment categories available through the online appointment system.

Each individual must make a separate appointment to ensure enough time is allotted for service. Appointments aren’t transferable to another customer. Duplicate appointments will be canceled.

To make an appointment, visit or call 888-SOS-MICH (767-6424).
