Filing License Restoration, Taking The Step

After taking the first and initial step in re-establishing your driving privilege, filing license restoration is the next step. Filing license restoration matters should always be handled by an experience license restoration attorney because of the special nature with the documentation and information that you will be sending to the Michigan drivers license appeal board. If the documentation and hearing is not executed accordingly and the individual fails to establish his or her burden in showing that they are privileged to having driving privileges again the individual will be required to wait an minimum of one-year before reapplying for his or her license.

It should be intuitive then that the second step of filing license restoration is highly important. This endeavor will consist of obtaining certain individuals to write letters of support on your behalf that will be submitted with your appeal. Depending on the reason for your suspension or revoked license, these individuals will need to attest to certain facts regarding your previous and current behavior. In many situations, individual lose their license because of substance abuse or criminal charges, and thus the letters of support in those situations will explain how the individual was prior to and after sobriety. Those attestations will help show to the appeal board that you will continue with your sobriety.

Furthermore, a substance abuse assessment, with a drug panel screening, will also be needed and submitted with the application to reinstate an individual’s drivers license. Again, it is highly important to obtain assistance when preparing and obtaining these documents for submission because the assessments are just as, if not more, important than the letters of support.

In the end, all of the information discussed above, and more that you will obtain from your attorney, will be and is important when submission your appeal for license reinstatement. Filing license restoration should begin with a full consultation from an experienced attorney, which will eventually lead to collecting the appropriate and correct documentation that will be submitted to the appeal division.
