When your Michigan driving license is revoked, the minimum period is 1 year for the first revocation, and 5 years for second and greater if they occur within 7 years of the first. In order to obtain driving privileges again,  the driver whose license was revoked may apply for a hearing before the Administrative Hearings Section (AHS) of the Secretary of State for license restoration. Petitioners are eligible for only one hearing per year.

The process is complex and can be daunting.

You must go before a hearing officer and prove by clear and convincing evidence that you have been sober for at least a year, and pose no threat to other drivers, and that you will continue to obey traffic laws.

Hearing Officers have complete and sole discretion as whether or not to grant you driving privileges again.

Representation before these hearing officers makes all the difference.


If you’re currently serving a period of driver’s license revocation, it’s important that you obtain an experienced attorney when you apply to the Administrative Hearings Section.

I have represented many clients and guided them through this process, from the initial paperwork, to making sure their letters of recommendation offered to the Secretary of State have maximum impact, all the way through to hearing before SOS hearing officers.
