Driver's License Restoration

Being able to drive is a necessity in today’s society. If you lose your driving privileges due to multiple alcohol offenses, you will be forced to make alternate arrangements to get to work, social engagements and routine, everyday tasks such as shopping and taking your child to/from school or daycare. Michigan’s driver's license restrictions are among the most severe in the nation. The Mika Meyers defense team has helped hundreds of clients retain their licenses and restore revoked driving privileges.

The courts are no longer permitted to grant restricted licenses based upon personal hardship. If your license is revoked, you must request reinstatement through the Driver's License Appeal Division (DLAD) after you reach your eligibility date. To satisfy the DLAD requirements, you must a positive alcohol evaluation, and demonstrate you have stopped using alcohol, completed alcohol therapy, and regularly attended a support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous. You will also need to produce letters from family and friends showing a change in lifestyle and offer a reason and need to drive.

You are eligible for license restoration only once a year. The restoration process is fairly complicated and requires a hearing and extensive documentation. The experienced defense attorneys at Mika Meyers guide you through the entire process to ensure that your appeal is complete and persuasive, and has the best likelihood of success.
