Suspended License

Trust Real Lawyers With Your Tickets.


Restoring your driver’s license in Michigan is not an easy task. Therefore, it is important, and helpful, to have the experienced lawyers at Roadside Attorneys™ guide you through the process. There are many different reasons that a license may be suspended. Roadside Attorneys™ will give you an actionplan that is based on your specific case. We will pull your driving record from the secretary of state ourselves, and go through every line to determine what needs to be done for your driving privilidges to be restored. 


If your licnese is suspended due to 2 or more alcohol convictions, we can represent you in an appeal to the Michigan Secretary of State. If you try it alone and fail, you will have to wait for at least one year before trying again. And the appeal process to the circuit court is almost impossible without an attorney.

If your license was suspended, you may need to complete an application for driver’s license reinstatement and provide supporting documents. Most importantly, you must pay the reinstatement fees.

If your license was revoked, in order to regain your driving privileges, you will have to reapply for your driver’s license after a certain period of time. You will have to show that you can be considered a safe driver by providing evidence and other documentary proof. If your request to restore your licenses is denied, you may have to petition the court or file an appeal to the Driver’s Assessment and Appeal Division.

The experienced lawyers at Roadside Attorneys will look at and assess the facts surrounding your charge. This will assist us in evaluating your eligibility to seek restoration of your driver’s license.

If you are eligible, we will prepare the necessary paperwork and, if necessary, prepare for your hearing with the Driver’s Assessment and Appeal Division. This will include not only explaining all of the license restoration fees involved, but preparing you for substance abuse evaluation, speaking to family, friends and co-workers about preparing reference letters and helping you prepare for the testimony that will take place at the hearing.

It is important to have experienced attorneys handle you license restoration process because you only get one hearing per year with the Driver’s Assessment and Appeal Division.
