Grand Rapids, MI Driver’s License Restoration Lawyer 

Helping Clients Restore Their Driving Privileges in West Michigan 

In Michigan, your driver’s license can be suspended or revoked for several reasons. Your driver's license will be suspended if you have been convicted of operating while intoxicated (OWI), you have received 12 or more points on your driving record, or you are guilty of operating a vehicle without the proper insurance. Whatever the reason may be, having your license suspended or revoked has long-term consequences that can affect your everyday life. That's why you need to contact a Michigan driver's license restoration attorney.

License Suspension vs. Revocation in Michigan

Our Grand Rapids driver's license restoration lawyers can help restore your driving privileges, whether they have been suspended or revoked. If your license has been suspended, your right to drive will be put on hold, and at the end of your suspension period, you will need to pay a reinstatement to restore full driving privileges. A license revocation is more serious because your driving privileges have been terminated altogether. There will be a minimum 1 year license revocation period for your first offense. Subsequent license revocation periods will be a minimum of 5 years.

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 Michigan driver's license reinstatement.

Requirements For AHS Hearing

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.
