Driver’s License Restoration

Call (248) 534-4559 to Let a Michigan OWI Attorney Get Your Driving Privileges Back

If your Michigan driver’s license has been suspended or revoked after an OWI arrest, you cannot legally drive a vehicle until you take specific steps to regain your driving privileges. Without the ability to drive, commuting to work, attending classes, making important appointments on time, and running household errands can be quite difficult. An experienced attorney can ensure you take the proper measures to get back your independence.

At Freedman Law Group, I, Attorney Mark Freedman, am committed to helping my clients get their lives back on track after an OWI charge. I can review your case, figure out your available legal options, and help you regain your driving privileges after suspension or revocation.

Driver Assessment and Appeal Division Hearing

There are two ways your driving privileges can be taken away after an OWI arrest if you fail the breath or blood chemical test in Michigan: suspension or revocation.

The main difference between the two is that you still have your driving privileges if your license was suspended—but you can’t use them until your suspension period ends. Once the suspension is over, you will only need to pay a $125 reinstatement fee with the Secretary of State (SOS).

By contrast, you need to schedule a Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD) hearing with the SOS. Keep in mind, you can only request this hearing once a year. This means if you fail to regain your driving privileges after the initial hearing, you must wait a full year to try again.

In order to succeed, you must prove that you will never drive drunk again and that your substance abuse disorder is permanently under control. You must provide clear convincing evidence—such as a substance abuse evaluation, ten-panel drug screening results, and testimonial letters—to prove your case.

Ready to Help You Today

I can help you present a strong case at your hearing to obtain the most favorable outcome. Without a lawyer, you could be vulnerable to making mistakes that could jeopardize your case and your driving privileges. I can guide you through the intricacies of the legal process and protect you from any pitfalls.
