Driver’s Licenses Awarded at Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight Hearing After DUI Convictions in Michigan

When you are convicted of multiple DUI convictions, you can have your license revoked for a number of years. Once you are eligible for a Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight hearing, you can contact an attorney and begin working to get your license back. Anyone applying for a driver's license hearing must fill out the forms specified by the Secretary of State (SOS), and Grabel & Associates can help you ensure you have every necessary document you need to win your hearing.

If you win at an initial hearing after your DUI license revocation, you will be issued a restricted driver’s license, and you will have to install an ignition interlock device. This will allow you to operate a motor vehicle as long as the state approved breathalyzer device is installed.

After a year or more, the Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight can issue an order allowing the ignition interlock device to be removed. If you have failed an ignition interlock test or committed another violation while driving on your restricted license, you could wait years for this order to be issued. Once the order is issued, you are eligible for a new Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight license appeal hearing, in which you can win a fully restored driver’s license. You will be required to follow the same process as in the initial hearing, and obtain new supporting evidence along with a new Substance Abuse Evaluation that proves your sobriety. If you win this hearing, you will be notified that you can remove the ignition interlock from your vehicle, and that you have now been approved for a full Michigan driver’s license.

Michigan river's License Hearing After Moving Out of State

If you have had your driver’s license revoked in Michigan, you can’t simply move out of state and obtain a license in your new state. Driver’s license data is shared across state lines through national databases, and a hold on your driving privileges in one state will carry over to your new residence. You will have to wait until you are eligible to file for clearance of the hold on your driving record in Michigan.

If you live out of state and you become eligible for a hearing, you can file for a driver’s license appeal with the Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight. Working with a lawyer will allow you to fully understand what it takes to win a driver’s license appeal, and will help you to get back on the road as soon as possible. If you win your driver’s license restoration hearing, the hold on your driving privileges will be lifted, and you will now be eligible for a full driver’s license in your new home state.

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.
