MICHIGAN VEHICLE CODE (EXCERPT)
Act 300 of 1949


257.809 Application for transfer of registration; fee; payment of difference in fee; deposit into transportation administration collection fund.

Sec. 809.

(1) An applicant for transfer of registration from a vehicle subject to section 801(1)(a) to another vehicle subject to that section shall accompany the application with a fee of $8.00. In addition to the fee of $8.00, if the registration is transferred from a passenger vehicle to a motor home and if the registration fee for the motor home is greater than the fee paid upon registration of the vehicle from which the registration was removed, then the applicant shall pay the difference in fee. If the fee is less than that paid for the registration of the vehicle from which the plates were removed, the secretary of state shall not refund the difference. The fees required by this subsection include all fees or charges imposed by this act for the transfer of registration, except those that may be assessed under section 234.

(2) An applicant for a transfer of registration, other than a transfer described in subsection (1), shall accompany the application with a fee of $8.00. In addition to the fee of $8.00, if the registration plates are transferred to another vehicle, as provided in section 233, and if the registration plate fee for a 12-month registration for the vehicle to which the registration is transferred is greater than the registration plate fee paid upon registration of the vehicle from which the registration was removed, then the applicant shall pay the difference for the new registration. If the fee is less than that paid for registration of the vehicle from which the registration was removed, the secretary of state shall not refund the difference.

(3) A transfer of registration fee collected under this section on and after October 1, 2004 through October 1, 2019 shall be deposited into the transportation administration collection fund created under section 810b.
