If you witness, suspect, or know of fraudulent, improper, or suspicious activity involving any Michigan Department of State programs or documents, submit a tip including the following information:
If your license is lost or was stolen, you can request to add an identity verification alert to your driving record to notify law enforcement that someone else may be using your license. The alert is not meant to prevent identity fraud or theft. However, it will signal law enforcement and Department of State staff to ask for sufficient proof of identity whenever your driver’s license number is run during a traffic stop or Secretary of State transaction.
Please note: It may take up to 30 days to post the alert to your record. Once added, it will remain on your driving record for seven years, unless you submit a request in writing to have it removed or extend the alert by submitting a new request form.
To add an alert to your driving record, download and complete a Driving Record Alert Request Form and submit it by mail to:
Michigan Department of State
Enforcement Division – Fraud Investigations Section
3044 W. Grand Blvd.
Detroit, MI 48202
