The short answer is: there is no such thing. I commonly get this question and people are amazed when I tell them that their drivers license restoration Michigan case will not be heard in front of a board. Instead, Michigan license restoration cases culminate in a hearing in front of a hearing officer. A hearing is similar to a trial. Evidence is submitted and witnesses can testify. Furthermore, you will be required to testify at the hearing. Any Michigan license restoration lawyer can tell you that the hearing officer decides whether or not you will get back on the road. Typically, the hearing officer will issue a written opinion advising you of his or her decision. You will get this written decision in the mail.
