A number of traffic offenses and the accumulation of points on your record are followed with the consequence of a suspended license. While this can be an inconvenience in your everyday life, driving on a suspended license will result in many more serious consequences. In the state of Michigan, driving on a suspended license is considered a misdemeanor traffic offense. Your first offense may include fines and up to 93 days in jail. If convicted for the second time, you may face up to 1 year in jail along with fines. Along with above-mentioned consequences, your insurance premiums will rise. Don’t let this happen to you.
Often many try to restore their driving license without the assistance of legal representation. This is how petitions get denied. There are many legal aspects involved in restoring a driving license that cannot be done without legal counsel guiding you throughout the process. We may petition to restore your license anywhere from 1-5 years after you have lost your license. These cases are initially heard through the Secretary of State’s Office. Play by the rules: DO NOT drive if your license is revoked. Call us to set up a consultation to discuss if petitioning for a restoration is the right path for you.
