Whether you need to restore your driver's license in Okemos, Lansing, Ingham County, or anywhere in Michigan, we're here to help you.

License Reinstatement After Revocation

To reinstate your license after a revocation, matters can get much more complicated. In addition to the requirements related to driver’s licenses suspension, a revocation will require you schedule a Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD) hearing with the Michigan SOS.

  • At your DAAD hearing, you will need to prove to an examiner that:
  • You are not abusing or addicted to drugs or alcohol.
  • You understand the rules and laws of the road.
  • You intend to follow the laws of the road.
  • You are not likely to relapse into substance use.

You can only request one DAAD hearing each year. If you are not approved at your hearing to regain your driver’s license, you must wait an entire year to try again. For this reason, it is crucial that you do all you can to thoroughly prepare for your DAAD hearing. Our Okemos lawyers can provide you with the insight and information you need to succeed.

If you don’t win your license restoration hearing, then you cannot apply for another hearing until a full year has passed. When you need driving privileges restored now, you can rely on our trial-tested defense attorneys to handle every aspect of your case to give you your best chance of winning.

Differences Between Suspension & Revocation

A driver’s license suspension is the typical means the state uses to remove someone’s driving privileges. It can be enacted after a variety of traffic violations or an average, nonviolent DUI arrest. A revocation is reserved for when it appears that the driver has serious substance abuse issues. Revocation may even require a driver to retake driver’s education courses or the driver’s test before a DAAD hearing can be scheduled.
