In Michigan, a driving or traffic offense can be a civil infraction, misdemeanor, or even a felony. Punishments may include fines and costs, points on your driving record, license suspension and even jail.
Although you may be able to have your Driver's License restored, it only takes one traffic violation, such as speeding, to raise the cost of your car insurance premiums, leading to more financial expense down the road.
Common Driving Offenses
|Careless Driving||Driving While License is Suspended (DWLS)|
|Drunk Driving (DUI)||Reckless Driving|
Having your license revoked can lead to extreme hardship. However, under Michigan law, you may be eligible to file an appeal with the Driver Assessment and Appeal Division (DAAD) and get your license back. Learn more about Restoring your Driver's License.
