The Michigan Secretary of State has revamped the forms and processes involved in drivers license reinstatement Michigan. Individuals seeking to reinstate their driving privileges following drunk driving convictions will need to submit an eight-page Request for Hearing and Substance Use Evaluation. The Request for Hearing contains six pages of questions and an Evidence Affidavit, which must be signed and dated by the petitioner.
One significant change is that all petitioners filing a Michigan drivers license appeal must answer six pages of questions and an Evidence Affidavit. In the past, only those seeking Administrative Review were required to fill out an affidavit and submit the documents to the Secretary of State for review.
Before these changes, only those requesting video hearings were required to fill out an Evidence Affidavit. However, a new requirement is that all drivers license appeal Michigan petitioners must fill out the form, which verifies that all evidence has been submitted. Whether or not hearing officers will accept additional documents at the hearing will probably be determined on a case-by-case basis.
