IF YOUR MICHIGAN DRIVERS LICENSE IS REVOKED AND YOU ARE LIVING IN ANOTHER STATE....GETTING A CLEARANCE IS MORE WORK BUT THE BENEFITS ARE GREATER

Many people that get into license trouble here in Michigan relocate to another State thinking about a new start. The sentiment is all fine and good, but, when it comes to getting around, unless the individual moves to a State with extensive commuter services they quickly get slapped in the face with the realization that they need their license back.

Probably the most shocking fact is that the individual will have to resolve the revocation in Michigan with the Michigan Secretary of State. However, after the realization sets in, the only thing left to do is to do it. Any amount of griping or complaining will be of no benefit. There is no way around it.

Although, if the person is a gambling sort, an administrative appeal can be attempted wherein only the petition and various evidence is submitted by mail and nobody appears “in person”. The problem is is that only one in four of these types of hearings are successful. When you consider there is only one petition granted to a petitioner per year, the odds are not in the petitioners favor, and, unless the petitioner does not really “need” a license and has nowhere to go and nothing to do all day every day, this approach to regaining your license back is not recommended.

With every denial of a petitioner’s request for driving privileges the process get a little more difficult. This is due to the fact that after a denial a record is made of the failed hearing and it must be reconciled at the next hearing. Meaning that the Order of denial must be reviewed and incorporated into the next hearing a year later. By saying “incorporated” I mean the reasons for the denial must be reconciled and discussed at the next hearing.

Our motto going into these hearings is, “keep it simple”. We don’t offer any unneeded information. We don’t prattle on in response to any question posed. We don’t make things harder for ourselves in any way. When a person gets denied, things get harder.

This all boils down to the bottom line of, in person hearings – one time.

The procedure requires the person to come into town two times but when that person leaves the second time after the hearing, they leave with FULL DRIVING PRIVILEGES. No interlock, no blowing every fifteen minutes, no re-calibrations, no second hearing (at a cost of another $1,500.00) and no more coming back to Michigan…unless it’s for something you decide to do rather than have to do.

Do not put your fate in someone’s hands that does not know exactly how to keep your best interests as priority number one. Call the Law of Office of Martin Lievois in Troy at 248-419-1566 or in Flint at 810-250-4550.
