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. Find out how our Michigan driver’s license attorneys
can help you protect your rights, your career, and your future.
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.
