Driver’s License Restoration

Grand Rapids Driver’s License Restoration Attorneys

Has Your Michigan Driver’s License Been Suspended or Revoked?

In Michigan, your driver’s license can be suspended or revoked for a number of reasons. If convicted of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI), your license will be suspended. If you receive 12 or more points on your driving record, your license will be suspended. If you are found guilty of operating a vehicle without proper insurance, your license will be suspended.

At Tanis Schultz, we understand that losing your driving privileges is simply not an option. However, once your driver’s license is suspended or revoked, having it restored is not a simple process. You need an experienced attorney on your side who can fight for your rights; you need Tanis Schultz.

The License Restoration Process

Whether your license has been suspended or revoked, our attorneys can help. If your license has been suspended, your right to drive has been put on hold for a definite or indefinite period of time. If your license has been revoked, however, your driving privileges have been terminated. In such cases, restoring your license can be extremely difficult.

After the revocation period has ended, you may either apply for a hearing with the Administrative Hearings Section (AHS) or file a hardship case with the circuit court. If your revocation is based on multiple DUIs, your only course of action is the AHS hearing. You are allowed one hearing per year to plead your case for a restoration.

The AHS hearing requires several steps. These include:

  • An alcohol or substance abuse evaluation
  • Evidence showing that you have any substance abuse problem under control, that there is little likelihood of a future DUI, and that you will drive safely and according to the law

Following your hearing and depending on the factors involved in your situation, you may be required to install and maintain an ignition interlock device in your vehicle in order to drive.

The AHS officer has the final say in whether your license will be restored. You only have one chance per year to make your case, which is why it is vital that you seek qualified legal help to present the strongest case possible.
