Wayne County Drivers License Restoration

Do you need to get your Michigan's drivers license back after repeat drunk driving offenses?

If you need a Wayne County drivers license appeal attorney, Attorney William Maze is a Romulus lawyer who can provide you with immediate help!

Drivers license revocations are for life, but you may petition the DLAD DAAD to get your Michigan driver's license back.

Repeat drunk driving offenders face license revocation upon conviction if there are two or more convictions within 7 years. The revocation is for LIFE. You cannot escape these consequences by leaving Michigan.  Every state will have show that Michigan has a hold on your drivers license.  The courts are no longer permitted to grant restricted driving privileges based upon any personal hardship that might be suffered. The life time revocation may be set aside once a person whose Michigan drivers license is revoked has requested reinstatement through the DLAD (Driver's License Appeal Division) after they have reached their eligibility date. At this hearing, the revoked driver bears the burden of proof by clear and convincing evidence.

Five things you MUST provide and prove to the DLAD

To satisfy the DLAD, a person must provide a positive alcohol evaluation, and they must show that they have a) stopped using alcohol, b) successfully completed alcohol therapy, c) regularly attend a support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous, d) produce letters from family and friends showing a change in lifestyle and impact from being alcohol-free, and e) show a reason and need to drive.

If you pick up a ticket for anything during this process, we have to keep it off your record!

Driving on a suspended or revoked license (DWLS) or proof of driving on a suspended or revoked license (such as an abstracted ticket for "no operator's permit on person") will results in an additional term of suspension being added to the suspension period. Thus, the eligibility date is extended farther out by the Michigan Secretary of State upon conviction or proof of DWLS.

We have been successful in keeping tickets and convictions for DWLS off a person's license, but this is by no means guaranteed. If we are unsuccessful in keeping the ticket off of your record, the clock gets reset for another year.

We can provide you the forms, but you should consider calling our firm for help.
