Driving under the influence, commonly referred to as “DUI,” is no longer a specific criminal offense in Michigan. DUI is simply a common way of saying that somebody has been charged with drunk driving. In Michigan, there are three different charges that generally arise from a DUI or drunk driving incident. The three charges are operating while intoxicated or “OWI,” operating while visibly impaired or “OWVI” and super drunk driving.
Michigan license restoration attorneys can advise you on the impact of convictions on your driving privileges. The impact depends on the type of offense and the number of convictions. Sanctions range from suspensions for a set period of time to revocations. If you are revoked, you will have to go through the Michigan drivers license restoration process. I would urge you to consult with a Michigan license restoration lawyer to reinstate your license.
