Determining the Next Steps in Your Detroit Driver’s License Case

What you need to do next in order to win back your license will depend greatly on the specifics of your offense and what you have been convicted of. If you are facing a first time DUI offense or less serious motor vehicle charge, you may simply have your license suspended for a period of time, or at worst, suspended indefinitely. In license suspension cases, a minimum period will be set, after which a person can simply apply for a new license – filling out forms and paying a fee in order to regain their driving privileges, similarly to what a brand new driver would have to do.

If a driver’s license has been revoked, it is much more difficult to regain it. All revoked license reinstatements are governed by the Driver Assessment Appeal Division of the State department, and it is necessary to apply for a hearing with the DAAD in order to get a revoked license reinstated, even in a restricted capacity. If you are not successful in your DAAD hearing, you will need to wait a year before reapplying, which is why it is critical to work with an experienced attorney who can help ensure you win back your license on the first attempt.

Gathering Evidence to Win a DAAD Hearing

After applying for a hearing, you will need to put together evidence supporting your sobriety and demonstrating that there will not be a risk of relapse. A 12-panel drug screen and professional substance abuse evaluation will be required, in addition to multiple letters of support, and a detailed review of treatment and rehabilitation attendance. There are many required elements involved in making a case to the DAAD, as well as a few supplementary details that our attorneys know can be crucial in certain cases, and will guide you through every element of your case so that you are able to win your hearing.

If you are able to prove your sobriety and win back your license, you will receive a restricted license of some variety at first. Our attorneys will help you understand every available outcome, as well as what the rest of the process will look like between winning your hearing and regaining a fully reinstated license.
