Driver’s License Lawyers in Muskegon

Our lawyers can help you get your driver’s license back while also ensuring you understand the unique restrictions that you may face if you win your license back after a hearing. If you are living within the state of Michigan, you will be given either a time-based license or purpose-based license, both of which carry unique restrictions. A time-based license allows you to drive during certain hours of the day only, and does not allow flexibility in case of changing plans or emergency. It may sound appealing to be able to drive wherever you want during this time, but usually a time-based license restricts your freedom more.

A purpose-based license allows you to drive to specific places whenever you need to, such as to and from work, school, sobriety programs, or medical treatment centers. You likely won’t get to choose which type of license you are given, though it may be possible to construct your case to lead to a certain outcome. Most clients prefer a purpose-based license, as the restrictions are far less constraining than those of a time-based license.

Restricted Licenses and Ignition Interlock Devices in Muskegon DL Reinstatement Cases

If you are living in the state of Michigan, you will be required to install an IID (Ignition Interlock Device), and drive on a time or purpose based license for at least one year, no matter which license you receive. After this time, you can file another appeal to obtain a fully reinstated license. Our Muskegon driver’s license lawyers can help you throughout this process; from your initial appeal to the day you get your full license back.

I’ve Moved Out of State – Can I Get My License Back?

If you have had your driver’s license revoked in Michigan and then moved out of state, you will not be able to obtain a new driver’s license in the state you now reside in until you obtain a clearance. If you win an appeal, you will receive clearance and can apply for a driver’s license in your new home state. Contact a lawyer to find out more about how out-of-state driver’s license laws could affect your license reinstatement case in Michigan.
