Obtain a Restricted Ann Arbor Driver’s License After a DL Suspension in MI

If your driver’s license has just been suspended, there will be a minimum suspension duration set in your specific case. After serving this minimum period, you can petition the court that served you your suspension, and/or contact the Michigan Secretary of State to ask for a restricted license. In some cases, the court has already set eligibility for a restricted license after a specified period, in which case you will just have to apply with the Michigan SOS. In other cases, you may need to request that the Ann Arbor or other MI court which gave you your sentence allow you to begin driving on a restricted license. In either case, it can be extremely beneficial to work with an attorney who understands how to most effectively petition for a restricted license so that you don’t waste a chance to get your driving privileges back.

If your license has been indefinitely suspended or revoked, it may be more difficult to get a restricted license. Always speak with an attorney and find out how your unique case will be affected.

How to Get a Restricted Driver’s License in Ann Arbor After Revocation

If your license has been revoked, you will need to apply for and win a hearing with the Driver Assessment Appeal Division in order to get a restricted license. Anyone who wins a DAAD hearing is awarded either a time-based or purpose-based restricted license, and after driving on this restricted license for a period (usually a year or more) you may then petition the DAAD for a fully reinstated license. An ignition interlock device will also likely be required.
