New feature part of Secretary Landâ€™s customer-service expansion
Customers served by the Shelby Township Secretary of State office now have the added convenience of a self-service option available 24 hours a day for easy license plate tab renewals, Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land announced today.
â€œExpanding customer convenience has been my goal since day one,â€ Land said. â€œLike our online services and expanded office hours, our Self-Self Stations offer customers service that fits into their busy schedule. With just a swipe of your credit card, you can â€˜scan, pay and go,â€™ and youâ€™re back at home before you know it.â€
The ATM-style Self-Service Stations allow people to renew their license plate tabs with a major credit or branded debit card without needing service at the counter. They also give office staff more time to devote to customers with more complicated transactions.
The addition of the Self-Service Station is part of the next wave of customer conveniences recently announced by Land. The Shelby Township office at 50640 Schoenherr Road is one of eight traditional offices across the state that is receiving Self-Service Stations. She also announced that six traditional offices will be transformed into PLUS offices, giving customers access to a Self-Service Station and expanded Wednesday hours.
Additionally, commercial driver license testing kiosks are being installed in 40 more offices and customers now can buy their driving record at every Secretary of State office, which is a benefit to many job-seekers.
Landâ€™s efforts to revolutionize the branch office system began in April 2004. They have resulted in the development of 38 PLUS offices and six SUPER!Centers. Customer satisfaction has consistently been high thanks to the modern, convenient services these offices provide.
Land reminds residents who have Internet access to check out the departmentâ€™s online services and Branch Office Locator at www.Michigan.gov/sos before visiting any office. For example, license tabs and watercraft registrations can be renewed online. Browsing the site helps customers know what documents theyâ€™ll need to bring when they go to an office.
