Wyoming, MI Driver's License Restoration Attorney

Located in Kent County just southwest of Grand Rapids, Wyoming, MI has the benefit of being connected to several bus lines via The Rapid, and having a relatively flat landscape, which makes bicycling a viable option. Nevertheless, having a suspended or revoked Michigan driver’s license can pose numerous challenges, especially if you need to get to work, school, or other important appointments. If you did lose your license, you have some legal options, whether appealing the suspension decision in court or going through the suspension and reinstatement process. Either way, you need to hire an experienced driver’s license attorney.

The first step in getting your driver’s license back is to contact the Wyoming, MI driver’s license attorneys at Grabel & Associates. We have decades of experience throughout Michigan, including Wyoming and the Grand Rapids area, and among hundreds of cases, we have a 97% success rate at driver’s license review hearings.

Getting Your Suspended Driver’s License Back

Following a suspension or revocation, you may be thinking, “But I need to drive!” Whether for your job, for school-related purposes for yourself or your children, or for many other reasons, getting your license suspended or revoked can make everything in your life dramatically more difficult. Fortunately, right when you receive notice that your license is going to be suspended or revoked, there are some things you can do.

For instance, if you received a DUI and the Michigan Secretary of State (SOS) suspended your license for 6-months, you may be able to apply for a restricted license after only serving 30 days of the suspension. With a restricted license, you can travel to approved places, between approved times, and only on approved days; nonetheless, you’ll still be able to get around. Depending on the circumstances that led to your license suspension, you may be able to get your license back after:

  • Completing the suspension term
  • Satisfying all requirements as part of the suspension
  • Paying the $125 reinstatement fee

If your license was revoked, you’ll need to reapply for your Michigan’s driver’s license and satisfy other requirements. For instance, in order to get your license reinstated after a revocation for multiple DUI convictions, you may need to file a request  the Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight section of Michigan Secretary of State (also known as the Administrative Hearings Section or AHS). For both suspensions and revocations related to DUI, you may need to prove to the courts that you are sober and low-risk for a relapse (or future possibilities for drunk driving). As part of this examination, you may be subject to a 12-panel drug test, be asked to provide letters of reference attesting to your sobriety, and pass other sobriety examinations.

Appealing a Suspended Driver’s License in Michigan

At the time of your suspension, if you disagree with the court’s decision and you want to contest the suspension, you may request a hearing in court. To get this process started, you need to fill out a Request for Driver License Appeal Hearing form and mail or fax it to:

Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight
P.O. Box 30196,
Lansing, MI 48909-7696
Fax: (517) 335-2190 or (517) 335-2189

Along with the Hearing form, you may also need to include:

  • Substance Use Evaluation
  • A laboratory report from a 12-panel urinalysis drug screen
  • Documentation of sobriety
  • Evidence of sobriety support (as applicable)
  • An ignition interlock report
  • And any additional evidence

During the hearing, an administrative law judge or an SOS representative will hear your case, and thereafter determine whether or not your license should remain suspended.

Please note: Recently Administrative Hearings Section (AHS) changed their name to the Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight. Common use of the name Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight has not yet been widely accepted and the entity responsible for driver's license hearings is still referred to as AHS in almost all legal areas, which is why we continue to use the term "AHS" throughout our website. More information about this change can be found at the Michigan Secretary of State's website.
