This blog will discuss the Level II License and whether it should help new drivers avoid the need for drivers license reinstatement Michigan. But first, let’s discuss the Level II License.  Before the Secretary of State will issue a Level II License, the driver must be free of crashes and violations for at least 90 days.

The Level II License carries some significant restrictions. However, it does allow significantly more freedom than a Level I Drivers License which is consistent with the purpose of the graduated licensing system. The idea is to gradually let the new driver have more freedom and less supervision as their skills increase. The overall purpose is to help new drivers avoid crashes and violations. If the program is successful, it should help new drivers avoid suspensions, and the need for drivers license restoration Michigan.

Whereas the Level I License required that a parent supervise the driving, the Level II License allows the new driver to drive unsupervised between 5 AM and 10 PM. Outside of that period, driving is allowed to employment or if accompanied by a parent.

There are also restrictions on who can be in the car while driving. Generally, there should not be more than one passenger in the car who is younger than 21 years of age. There are exceptions, but that’s the general rule.

These restrictions make sense and should help to reduce the need for drivers license appeal Michigan.  Why?  Nighttime driving is usually more risky, and having more than one friend in the car can be distracting. Reducing the risk and distractions should, in turn, reduce the need for Michigan drivers license restoration and its costs.
