State Rep. Curt VanderWall of Ludington today introduced legislation to help drivers when they renew their vehicle registration tabs.House Bill 4535 will provide a 30-day grace period for Michigan drivers who have not received their license plate tabs in the mail from the Secretary of State to place them on their vehicle.“Currently, a vehicle’s registration expires on the driver’s birthday, so the new tabs need to be on the vehicle by that time,’ said VanderWall. “However, a person could renew their tabs online before their birthday, but they may not arrive in the mail in time. In this situation, a driver would actually be in violation of the law and could get a ticket. This legislation would fix that.”Registration tabs may be obtained immediately at a local Secretary of State branch or a self-service kiosk as well as through the mail and online.“This bill will protect drivers who are waiting for their tabs to arrive and will give them reassurance that they will not have to worry about receiving a ticket because of their expired tabs,” the first-term legislator said.House Bill 4535 has been referred to the House of Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for consideration.### 01May Rep.
