Repeat Offender Registration Status Inquiry

This Web site allows dealers and others to verify if a vehicle purchaser can be denied registration under Michigan's "Repeat Offender Law" (MCL 257.219). The law prohibits people whose driver’s license is suspended or revoked from buying or transferring a license plate. It also prohibits the Department of State from registering any vehicle owned, co-owned, leased, or co-leased by drivers subject to registration denial.

The Web site verifies if the name, date of birth (DOB), and driver’s license number or state identification card number appearing on a Michigan driver’s license or state identification card match department records.

To check each vehicle purchaser's eligibility for a registration and verify that their Michigan driver’s license or state identification card is a valid document, follow the instructions below to complete the form.

Remember to check each purchaser's eligibility for vehicle registration.

This site will return one of three responses to your inquiry:

  • Record found. This purchaser is currently eligible for vehicle registration.
  • Record found. This purchaser is currently not eligible for vehicle registration.
  • No driver’s license or state identification card record found with this number, name, and DOB.
