HOW TO PREPARE FOR AN
ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW OR LICENSE APPEAL HEARING
INVOLVING SUBSTANCE USE RELATED OFFENSES
You are eligible for an administrative review if you meet one of the following requirements and the licensing action you are appealing does not involve a fatality:
You are a Michigan resident with two or more alcohol and/or drug related driving convictions and you are
currently on a restricted license that was approved at a previous license appeal hearing, or
You are not a Michigan resident and attempting to clear your Michigan driving record.
You will not have to appear in person for an administrative review. Instead, the Department of State will review the documents you submit and its own records to determine if your full driving privileges can be reinstated. You will receive a written decision by mail. If the decision is unfavorable, you can still request an in-person or video hearing. You may only request one administrative review in any 12 month period. An administrative review cannot be scheduled until all required documents are received by the department. Please see the reverse side for further information.
In Person or Video Hearings
If you request a hearing instead of an administrative review, you must appear live at a hearing site in Michigan. Your appeal will be heard and decided by an attorney-hearing officer, who will either appear live at the hearing site or via video conferencing equipment. Once a hearing has been scheduled you will be notified of the date, time and location. After the hearing, a written decision will be mailed to you. Your rights:
You may bring an attorney with you; however, an attorney is not required. You may purchase a transcript of the hearing. If you disagree with the hearing decision, you can appeal the decision to a Michigan circuit court.
