Drivers License Restoration, Mi

The Michigan Secretary of State—like any governmental agency—has a lot of “red tape” and “grey guidelines” for how and when a suspended or revoked driver can seek restoration of privileges.  Knowing when you are eligible for a license appeals hearing is often the most important question, as applying too soon can end result in wasted money/resources/effort, yet waiting too long might prevent a new job, or a promotion, or the ability to take care of your children. 

Every day, people from all over Michigan (and even the country) call our firm and ask these questions:

  •  “Is my license suspended, or revoked?”

  • “When am I eligible to seek return of my license?”

  • “What are my chances of success at a license restoration hearing?”

Answering these questions often hinges on a careful review of a person’s “Michigan Master Driving Record,” which documents all criminal convictions, civil infractions, accidents, and prior suspensions.  More importantly, it clearly details the status of a person’s license:  Valid; Suspended; or Revoked/Denied.  And, it clearly reveals when the person is eligible for a license appeal:  Definite Suspension; Indefinite Suspension; Revoked/Denied and Eligible at a Future Date. 

Daniel T. Geherin, of the Geherin Law Group PLLC has been a license appeals specialist for over twenty years. Dan has conducted over 1,000 license reinstatement hearings at the Michigan Secretary State, and has helped thousands of clients protect/restore their driving privileges. Before accepting a new license appeals client, Dan and his team almost always require their them to get their Master Driving Record, as a thorough review is necessary to properly, ethically and expertly help them.

A client can typically get a copy of his/her license at any Secretary of State branch for a fee of approximately $10.00.  However, more and more branches are requiring an appointment in lieu of walk-in hours, so people may have to plan accordingly. Alternatively, clients can go online to the Michigan Secretary of State website and follow this link:


If you have questions about your license status and how/when/where/if you can reinstate your privileges, please obtain your Master Driving Record, and then contact the Michigan Driver’s License Reinstatement Specialists at (734) 263-2780, or Contact Us today.
