How do I know if I’m considered a habitual offender?

driver's license reinstatement MI

Under section 303 of the Michigan Vehicle Code [the Code; MCL 257.303] certain combinations of alcohol and/or drug-related convictions lead to a presumption that a person is a "habitual offender." The law requires the Secretary of State to revoke that person's driver license. The law also requires the Secretary of State to deny a license for that person until he or she meets certain conditions.

Frequently, clients try to “go it alone” and get back their license without an attorney.  Or as often, people hire attorneys who are inexperienced in this field. What happens then? The Petitioner is DENIED and must wait another long year to try again. The Michigan Secretary of State can be a difficult, confusing, bureaucratic agency filled with red tape and gray guidelines. Those who have lost their license often get stuck in a never-ending maze and can’t get out----until they hire an authentic, experienced and successful license appeals specialist to help.

When a person loses their license, they understandably seek assistance from the legal community. But, finding an experienced, dedicated and respected driver’s license appeals attorney is tough. When you do connect with a reputable driver’s license restoration attorney, you’re often scrambling to make sure you ask all the right questions:

“When am I eligible for a license appeal?”

“What do I have to do to earn a full, or restricted, license?”

“Do you regularly practice in front of the Secretary of State hearing judges who will decide my case?”

License revoked?

Need help getting your license reinstated?

GLG Michigan can help you and explain every step of this complicated process. We provide you with outlines, forms, and referrals to begin the application procedure.  As for the SAE, we have relationships with licensed therapists throughout the State of Michigan to whom we may refer you for this evaluation.   

Important points to remember about the SAE:

First, it must be a true SUBSTANCE evaluation, and not just an ALCOHOL evaluation. 

Second, it must include and attach all testing instruments used in the assessment, including the toxicology screen (with proper variables) and any MAST/SASSI scoring information.

Third, it must provide detailed information about the applicant’s abstinence, relapse and treatment history. 

Fourth, it must provide both a proper diagnosis and prognosis for continued sobriety.

What is a “Substance Abuse Evaluation”?

board-certified drunk driving defense attorney Ann Arbor.


If you’ve been convicted of multiple drunk driving offenses, especially in a short period of time, your Michigan Driver’s License has likely been REVOKED. This means you must apply for the reinstatement of your license, and must jump through several “hoops” to get your license back.  The first step in the reinstatement process—and perhaps the single most important “hoop” to jump through—is getting a Substance Abuse Evaluation (“SAE”) done.
