Types of Licenses Awarded to Michigan Residents at Ann Arbor DAAD Hearings

You residency in the state of Michigan will play a big role in determining which types of licenses may be awarded to you after a DAAD hearing. If you are a resident of the state and are still living in the state at the time of your DAAD/DLAD hearing, you will be required to drive on some type of restricted license for at least one year before applying for a full license. It is also likely you will be required to have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle.

There are two types of restricted licenses you can receive if you are a resident who wins a DAAD appeal hearing. In some cases, a purpose-based license is awarded. On a purpose-based license, a person is allowed to drive to specific locations at any time, which may include work, school, court ordered meetings, medical appointments, and other specific places. A purpose-based license allows quite a bit of freedom, as you are still able to drive your vehicle any time of day provided it is to or from one of these locations.

In other cases, a time-based restricted license is awarded. With a time-based license, a person can drive anywhere they want, but only during certain times of day. While this may seem like it gives you more freedom, it often isn’t the case, as there is no flexibility in case of emergency or unforeseen circumstances, and driving outside of the time restraints can result in serious penalties.

You don’t get to choose which type of license you will be awarded, and it will largely depend on which the hearings officer views as less likely to result in a second offense. Our lawyers will work with you to structure your appeal so that you can obtain the case result that works best for you.
