How Can I Get My Michigan Drivers License Back?
Michigan is one of those states where your driving privileges can be suspended or revoked for a number of reasons. If you or someone you know falls into one of the following categories relief may be available:
1) Implied Consent Suspension: Michigan first enacted its Implied Consent law back in 1967. As stated by the Michigan Supreme Court in Collins v Secretary of State, 384 Mich 656, 668, 187 NW2d 423 (1971) ” The immediate purpose of the implied consent law is to obtain the best evidence of blood alcohol content at the time of the arrest of a person”
In the State of Michigan when you obtain a valid drivers license you automatically consent to a sample of your blood or urine if requested by an officer relating to a vehicle stop. Refusal of the test results in a one year suspended license for first time refusal. There is once in a lifetime relief in circuit court for restricted driving privileges for a first time refusal.
2)Driver Assessment and Appeal Division: The Assessment Division of the Secretary of state serves as an avenue of appeal for the average driver seeking reinstatement of a drivers license revoked by the state for too many points, too many chargeable accidents, habitual convictions for drinking and driving.
If you are currently revoked for habitual drinking and driving convictions you must meet the states set of standards to receive restricted driving privileges.
