Michigan Drivers License Restoration

Traverse City Criminal Defense Lawyer

drivers license When your driver’s license is revoked due to drunk driving convictions, you must prove that you are going to be a safe driver to the DLAD hearing officer. At the DLAD hearing you must prove with clear and convincing evidence that:

  • Any substance abuse problem is in remission, and there is little chance of a relapse; and
  • That you are unlikely to drink and drive in the future.

If you can provide this information, it is not a guarantee that your license will be restored. There are a few more contributing factors that the judge will take into consideration when making a final decision. Some of these factors include the circumstances around your first offense, any prior criminal convictions and the substance you were under the influence of.

If your license is being revoked, schedule a case review and discuss your options with our attorney!
