What Are the Chances of Me Getting my License Back?

One of the most common questions we get asked is: “What are the chances of me getting my license back?”

The answer is, “it depends.” Unfortunately, there are no solid comprehensive statistics regarding Michigan license reinstatements. Each particular case, yours included, is unique in its own way. No two individuals are alike when it comes to their past and present events and situations. The past convictions of drunk driving on your record wreak havoc on your ability to obtain a driver’s license. This in turn makes it difficult to advance in employment, maintain employment, or just be there for your kids’ soccer games.

Every person is required to have the four requirements to apply and be considered for a driver’s license reinstatement application with the Secretary of State, those being:

  1. 3-5 Letters in Support.
  2. An accurate SOS 257 Form.
  3. A Substance Use Evaluation.
  4. A 12 Panel Drug Screen.

However, our office takes the application process a step further. We take the time to learn about you, your past, your present, and especially your future. Every person’s situation is different and their application should be tailored to reflect that. At Tanis Schultz PLLC our personalized approach to your driver’s license restoration will tell your story, whether that was difficult times in your life that brought about drunk driving convictions, or poor choices when you were younger.


But life changes and people should not be subjected to pay for their mistakes forever. We make sure that your story is told while proving how your life has changed since those difficult times.
