Can I Get My Driver’s License Back?
For DUI drivers, license restoration in Michigan is not impossible. To restore your driver’s license in Michigan, you will need to prove by clear and convincing evidence that any substance abuse/dependency problem is under control and likely to remain under control; that there is a low or minimal risk of repeating previous abusive behavior related to alcohol or drugs; that there is a low or minimal risk of driving while impaired or intoxicated; and that the petitioner has maintained a period of abstinence consistent for at least one year. Reinstating a driver’s license in Michigan will require you to seek a hearing at the Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD). Usually you are only allowed one hearing per year — meaning that how you use your time and present your evidence at the hearing are important, and choosing a skilled and experienced attorney to assist you in that endeavor is equally important.
