Out of State Driver's License Restoration

If you have had your Michigan driver’s license suspended or revoked and have moved out of the state, you can’t simply apply for a new driver’s license in the state you now call home. Due to instant sharing of driving records over the internet, it is no longer possible to hold a driver’s license in one state while you are ineligible to hold a license in another, and moving out of the state can complicate your driver’s license restoration case. Fortunately, Grabel & Associates has extensive experience working with clients who have left Michigan, and we know what it takes to get you back on the road.

Restore a Revoked Driver’s License From Out of State

When your license is revoked, you face a more complex process in order to regain the ability to get a new license. Whether you face revocation for drunk driving, repeat DUI offenses, or other motor vehicle offenses, you need to win a Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight, formerly the Administrative Hearings Section (AHS), appeal in order to regain the ability to drive. You must wait a set period before applying for an appeal, and should always speak to an attorney before preparing for your hearing. Many people lose their driver's license hearing appeals because they do not work with skilled driver’s license restoration lawyers, yet our firm boasts an impressive win rate of 97% for first time appellants. Contact us now to begin working toward license reinstatement and fight for your freedom to drive.

Please note: Recently DLAD/DAAD changed their name to the Administrative Hearings Section (AHS). Common use of the name AHS has not yet been widely accepted and the entity responsible for driver’s license hearings is still referred to as DLAD/DAAD in almost all legal areas, which is why we continue to use the term “DLAD/DAAD” throughout our website. More information about this change can be found at the Michigan Secretary of State’s website here.
