that depends on how your county handles it. in oakland they are set up to take your pic right there (for $10, same as it would cost anywhere else)

The law states it must be a recent photo. Recent is not defined, but they expect it to be six months old or newer. On my recent renewal I brought a passport photo that still looks just like me. It was a second copy the one I used on my previous CPL, and even though it still looked like me, they wouldn't accept it. You are allowed to bring your own, or you can just give 'em $10 to take a new one.

I don't know that Kent County will take your pic. Though Allegan might

Stop by Kinkos on your way to the County Clerk. Problem solved.
