Restoration of a Revoked Driver’s License

The most common form of license restoration case is filed with the Driver’s Appeal and Assessment Division (otherwise known as the DAAD or the DLAD). Most revocations result from repeated drinking and driving convictions like OWI, DUI, and DWI. Generally, the Michigan Department of State will revoke the driving privileges of someone who is convicted of two OWI cases within 7 years or three within 10 years. DAAD cases typically start with an appeal hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (hearing officer) if you are a Michigan resident. If you do not reside in Michigan, you have the added option of first seeking an administrative review of your restoration request.

If the hearing officer denies the appeal for driver’s license restoration, a petition for a hardship license can be filed in the circuit court located in the county where the petitioner resides. Our Driver’s license restoration lawyers are often hired by people who’ve lost their previous appeals with other, inferior lawyers and need more qualified representation for a circuit court appeal.

Winning a license restoration appeal takes more than just intensive preparation; it takes a tried and true system that is consistently successful. If your case is ill-prepared, you will have to wait a minimum of one year before you can attempt to restore your driving privileges another time. Think about the value of getting your driver’s license back and what doors restoration will open for you. The stakes are too high to trust your fate to the lowest bidder or a general practice lawyer who occasionally handles license restoration cases. The lawyers with LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. have decades of experience and a history of success seeking restoration before the Driver’s Appeal and Assessment Division.
