Does this mean I don't have to go to the Secretary of State's office any longer? Not sure about that, but how cool is this?

According to WILX, Michigan drivers will now be able to buy a gallon of milk and renew their license plate all in one place.

The Secretary of State is installing self service kiosk stations across the state to help you renew your license tabs.

Drivers just have to scan their renewal notice bar code, pay and print their vehicle registration card and license plate tab.

The Secretary of State says the stations will be able to renew any existing automobile, motorcycle or watercraft registration.

The stations cannot update your address, or renew your driver's license. Drivers can renew six months before, or 10 months after their expiration date.

I think this is a great idea. Now I can go to Kroger, get my shopping done and renew my license tabs, all at the same time.

Five Kroger locations offer this service already, Clarkston, Ferndale, Grosse Pointe Woods, and Lincoln Park. And yes, there will be more locations in the near future.
