Below are some of the steps that you need to take to get a revoked license back in Clinton. It is critical to remember, however, that each case is unique, and only by working with a talented attorney can you guarantee you are pursuing the best possible legal actions throughout your case.
In order to get your license back, you will first need to request a hearing with the Driver Assessment and Appeal Division. In order to receive a hearing, you will need a valid and recent substance abuse evaluation form that has been completed by a licensed professional. While there are additional pieces you will likely want to prepare before requesting a hearing, you can technically mail in your request with a substance evaluation form and hearing request form.
In addition to the substance abuse evaluation, you will need reference letters from friends, family, or community members that verify you have remained sober, and a ten-panel drug screen, in addition to proof of involvement in AA or other support groups. Our lawyers can help you collect and prepare these key pieces of evidence before you face the DAAD.
In a DAAD hearing, a hearings officer will want you to prove that you have remained sober, and that you are involved in some sort of alcohol/drug abuse support group. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to convince them of this. You will need convincing letters, a clear substance abuse evaluation, and other evidence that demonstrates to the hearings officer that you are not likely to reoffend. If they believe there is any risk that you will commit another DUI offense, it is unlikely you will regain your license.
If you can successfully prove your sobriety and win a DAAD hearing, you won’t get your full license back right away. First, you will receive a restricted license, which allows you to either drive to and from certain places, or during certain times of the day. Which restricted license you receive is up to the DAAD. You will also likely have an ignition interlock installed on your vehicle if you do not already. This restricted license period could last a year or more, at which point you will have to reapply to regain your full driving privileges. Our lawyers can work with you throughout this process, from applying for a DAAD hearing to getting your full license back. We are committed to helping guide clients through the quickest and most effective route to regaining their freedom, and we know what it takes to win a DAAD hearing in Clinton and statewide.
