Everyone knows the consequences of a drunk driving offense are severe. There are many fines and costs to pay, the possibility of jail time, and the loss of your driving privileges for an extended period of time. How long your driver’s license will be revoked depends on how many DUI convictions you have on your record.

Your Michigan driver’s license will be suspended according to the following guidelines:

  • A first DUI conviction – License suspension for a maximum of 30 days
  • A first DUI conviction with a BAC higher than 0.16 – License suspension for a maximum of one year
  • A second DUI conviction within seven years – License suspension for a minimum of one year
  • A third DUI conviction within 10 years – License suspension for a minimum of five years

If you have a suspended license for multiple DUI offenses in Birmingham, MI, Fraiberg & Pernie, PLLC is committed to getting your driving privileges back. Our drunk driving attorneys: Attorney Eric Pernie, a former police officer, and attorney Matthew Fraiberg understand the thorough process of restoring your driver’s license and what is expected of you to succeed.

License Reinstatement in MI after a DUI Suspension/Revocation

If your Michigan driver’s license has been suspended or revoked after being convicted of drunk driving, this means your driving privileges will be taken away and you will need to apply for license reinstatement with the Secretary of State as soon as the period of suspension is over. Habitual offenders must apply for driver’s license restoration to the Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD).

There are several requirements regarding documentation and a substance abuse evaluation (SAE), which is a form that is completed by a certified doctor or substance abuse therapist. For your request to be granted, all you must do to obtain a hearing date is to complete an SAE. Additionally, you will also need to turn in letters from people in the community that know something about your past and present drinking and drug use habits.

At the hearing, the hearing officer will review all related documents and will ask you several questions to ensure your verbal answers are the same as all the responses in the SAE and letters. If you do not take the proper steps to adequately prepare for your hearing to restore your driver’s license or to obtain a restricted driver’s license, you will risk being denied. This is why it is imperative to hire an experienced drunk driving lawyer from Birmingham to guide you throughout the process. Our attorneys know the ins and outs of the drivers license restoration process in Michigan and can ensure you are well equipped for the hearing.
