Steps to Get a Revoked Driver’s License Back in Kalamazoo

Driver’s license revocation is serious, and only occurs after very serious criminal convictions. If you have been convicted of multiple DUI offenses, or a similarly serious offense, you could have your driver’s license taken away. While with a license suspension can be served and the offender can simply reapply and pay a fee to get a new license, with revocation the offender has to win a hearing with the Driver Assessment Appeal Division (DAAD), also referred to as the Administrative Hearings Section (AHS). In order to win a hearing, you will need to prove that you have remained sober and that you are not a risk to reoffend.

Gathering Evidence to Prove Your Sobriety

There are a number of things that you need to do before your hearing with the DAAD in order to make sure you are successful. You will need to get a written substance abuse evaluation from a recognized professional, even before you apply for your hearing. Valid tests include MAST, SASSI, and ASI, otherwise known as the Michigan Alcohol Screening Test, the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory, and the Addiction Severity Index. You’ll also require a 12-panel drug screen, which will show if you have had drugs or alcohol recently.

In addition, you need to get letters from friends, family members, and advisors or sponsors that support your claim that you have stayed completely sober since your conviction. You will also need documentation that proves you have attended AA or another recognized support group.

Our lawyers can help you gather all this and other documentation needed in time for your DAAD/DLAD hearing, and we know what you need to put together if you want to win your license hearing.
