1. Driver’s License Restoration in Michigan is Complicated
Hearings with the Michigan Department of State Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight (MI Office of Hearing and Admin) within the Michigan Secretary of State are governed by complex administrative rules and procedures.
One misstep, such as going to your hearing and without knowing the applicable standard of proof, could result in the continued loss of your driving privileges for one (1) additional year.
We know you don’t have the time to lose, as restoring your driver’s license is vital for your career, family and overall livelihood.
2. One Mistake Will Ruin Your Chance of Restoring Your Driver’s License
Before requesting a hearing, you’ll need to file a petition, along with numerous documents, such as character reference letters from those who can attest that you’re sober from drugs and alcohol.
One misstep in the filing process, or with any of the necessary documents, will result in an automatic denial without a hearing.
If you’re denied, you must wait one (1) full year before requesting a hearing again to restore your driver license.
Our team assists with the preparation for all of your paperwork (such as the substance abuse evaluation and securing your letter writers) to make sure you get it right the first time.
