Steps to Get a Suspended Driver’s License Back

If you have had your driver’s license suspended in Michigan after a DUI/OWI or traffic violation conviction, contact a driver’s license attorney and work to win your driving privileges back. When your suspension ends, you can get your driver’s license back by paying a reinstatement fee, provided you have not committed any other offenses or violations during your suspension. After drug or alcohol related license suspension, you may have to request a driver’s license hearing, and you will require a criminal defense team to help you prepare. Grabel & Associates has extensive experience assisting clients in driver’s license reinstatement cases and Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight hearings.

Steps to Get Suspended Driver’s License Back in Michigan

When your license is suspended, you will face a period of time in which you are ineligible to drive. As soon as you are eligible for reinstatement, you can regain your driving privileges simply by paying a reinstatement fee. For general license reinstatement, you will have to pay $125 in order to get your license back. If your driver’s was suspended due to a drug crime charge (such as possession of marijuana or another illegal drug), or if your license was suspended due to minor in possession of alcohol (MIP) charges, you will have to pay $250.

Check your driver’s license status if you think you are eligible for reinstatement, and visit your local Secretary of State branch office. You will need photo identification or other identity related documents, valid government issued I.D., your Social Security number, and proof of Michigan residency in order to apply for a new driver’s license, and you will have to pay your reinstatement fee. If your license has been revoked or denied, contact Grabel & Associates for representation throughout the reinstatement process. We will help you fight driver’s license suspension or revocation in any of Michigan’s 83 counties.

DL Suspension and Revocation in Michigan

Driver’s license suspension is different than license revocation, and if your license has been revoked you will have to follow different procedures in order to have your license reinstated. If your license has been revoked or denied due to multiple drug or alcohol offenses, you may have to apply for a hearing before the Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight, formerly the Administrative Hearings Section (AHS), before you can reapply for a license.

Contact Grabel & Associates if you are facing license revocation or if you need help preparing for a license reinstatement hearing. We have experience working with clients in drug and alcohol crime cases and know what it takes to win a license back after revocation.

Our Approach to Getting Your Suspended License Back

While it is much easier to get your license back after a suspension as opposed to revocation of your driver’s, it is still important to be aware of the proper procedures you need to take in getting your license back.

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.
