Letters of Reference for Driver’s License Restoration

Michigan Driver’s License Restoration Attorney

If you are seeking to reinstate your driver’s license, you will need to request a hearing with the Administrative Hearings Section (AHS), formerly known as the Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD). As part of your driver’s license appeal hearing, the state of Michigan requires that you present reference letters documenting your sobriety. You may have only one opportunity each year to petition for the restoration of your driver's license and it is that critical your testimonial letters have the maximum impact.

For many people, driving is more than just a convenience—it is central to their livelihood as possessing a valid license is a requirement for numerous jobs.

There is no time to waste. Request your consultation online today and find out how we can help you get back on the road.

What Should a Reference Letter Contain?

The reference letters can allow the AHS to look into an applicant’s life and determine if a driver would present a risk to themselves or others on the road. It is crucial that each letter demonstrates that any drug or alcohol related issues have been dealt with and a petitioner is not at risk for driving under the influence (DUI). It is highly recommended that all letters are entirely original and not merely a copy of an example or template. Our attorneys can review all documents with you to see that they meet each requirement.

The AHS requires that all letters include:

  • The writer’s relationship to you
  • When you met and how often you see one another
  • Their account of your past drug use
  • If they are aware of your involvement in a treatment program
  • The last time they are aware of you using drugs or alcohol

Who Can Write a Reference Letter?

Your references can come from the people with whom you have the most contact with including family, friends, and coworkers. In fact, it is recommended that your letters come from a variety of different sources. You may want to consider asking members of a support group or neighbors for a reference.

Evidence from a larger cross-section of your life may have a greater impact on the hearing section. The more authentic your references come across, the greater impact they may have. While you may submit up to six letters, you are required to present at least three. Furthermore, all letters must be signed, dated, notarized, and include the contact information of the writer.

Real Testimonials
From Previous Clients

  • I would come back for their legal services again and again! They are kind, caring, and professional.

    “Mr White and his team are absolutely amazing!!! I would come back for their legal services again and again! They are kind, caring, and professional. They saved my husband from being wrongly convicted and saved our family from so much stress and turmoil that we thought we could never get through!!!! Thank you again to this amazing team! Even though I don't think I could ever thank them enough for everything they have done for us and our family!”

  • I was found not guilty and cleared of all charges.

    “When my trial began, everyone that I saw would look at me funny, like I was a bad person. By the time the witnesses had finished testifying at trial, everyone was using those bad looks for my accusers. I was found not guilty and cleared of all charges.””

  • I was expecting to go to jail yesterday but, because of Jamie, I am home with my family instead.

    “My experience with White Law was awesome and I am definitely going to hire Jamie for my son’s case. Jamie did exactly what he said he was going to do and I appreciate that. I had a previous attorney from a different firm that didn’t do what I wanted him to do. It was frustrating. Jamie was great because he always left it up to me to decide. He would give me all my options and then let me make an informed decision. That’s what attorneys are supposed to do. You pay them money to help you out, not force you into deals. I was expecting to go to jail yesterday but, because of Jamie, I am home with my family instead – and that’s what is most important to me. I would recommend Jamie and his firm to anyone.”

  • White law had been very helpful in working with us.

    “White law had been very helpful in working with us. They explained everything in a way me and my family could understand, and overall seem to care about their customers.”

  • He’s the best!!!

    “I would highly recommend James White as an attorney! Both him and his staff are extremely professional and if you want an attorney that will fight for you he’s the best!!!”
