Types of Licenses Awarded at DAAD Hearings in Kalamazoo

If your license has been revoked, you will have to win a hearing with the DAAD (Driver Assessment Appeal Division) also referred to as the DLAD or AHS. You might think that winning a hearing means everything will go back to the way it was before the license revocation, and you will get your full license back right away. This isn’t the case, however, and if you win your license restoration hearing, you will get some kind of restricted driver’s license, which you will likely keep for at least a year before you can apply to win back a fully reinstated license.

Types of Licenses Awarded to Michigan Residents in Kalamazoo

If you were convicted of multiple DUI offenses in Michigan and are applying for a DAAD hearing while you still live in the state, you will only be able to win back a restricted driver’s license. Under a restricted driver’s license, you will need to have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle, and when and where you drive could be restricted depending on the type of license awarded to you. After a year, you may be able to apply to have the ignition interlock device removed, and may be able to get the restrictions on your ability to drive completely lifted, depending on the details of your case and provided you have complied with the restrictions and had no other DUI-related issues since.

There are two different types of restricted license that are commonly awarded in DAAD/DLAD hearing cases. In some instances, you will receive a time-based restriction, which allows you to operate a motor vehicle but only within certain hours of the day (likely, corresponding to your work hours). In other cases, you may get a purpose-based license which lets you drive to anywhere on a list of specified destinations, but at any time you want. Ultimately, it is up to the hearings officer deciding your case to determine what kind of license you get.

Win a DAAD Hearing After Moving Out of State

If you no longer live in the state of Michigan, you still won’t be able to get a new license without winning a license hearing.
