License revoked after Driving while Intoxicated?

If you have had two drinking and driving offenses in seven years or three substance abuse offenses in ten your license will be revoked as you will be classified as a habitual offender by the Michigan Secretary of State Driver Assessment and Appeal Division.

Two driving while intoxicated offenses within seven years means a one-year minimum revocation. Three driving while intoxicated offenses within ten years results in a five-year revocation. 

You have to wait until the revocation period has run its course before you can apply. There are no hardship licenses available during this time, you simply have to wait. 

How do I get my license back after two DUI’s?

If you are a habitual offender you must prove to the secretary of state by clear and convincing evidence that your substance abuse issue is under control and likely to remain under control.

Put more clearly, that means that you must be sober for at least a year and plan on being sober for the rest of your life. 

A lot of people get this confused, and think its okay to drink but they have to promise not to ever drink and drive again, that is wrong. The legal standard requires absolute and total abstinence from drugs and alcohol. 

In order to meet this standard you must present a substance abuse assessment, drug screen, an affidavit, and sobriety support letters. Once these documents are submitted you will have a hearing date where your testimony is taken under oath.
