The previous blog discussed the preparation, education and testing required before the Secretary of State issues the Level II License and its effect on Michigan driver license restoration. This blog will discuss the restrictions that apply to Level II Licenses and its impact on Michigan drivers license restoration.

Those with a Level II graduated license may operate a vehicle unsupervised between 5 AM and 10 PM. However, after 10 PM until 5 AM, restrictions apply. Driving is permitted after 10 PM until 5 AM for driving to, from and during the course of employment, accompanied by a parent or legal guardian or a licensed driver 21 years of age or older designated by the parent or legal guardian. As compared to a Level I License, this permits unsupervised driving. These restrictions make sense because late-night driving, especially for beginning drivers, tends to be more risky. This should help cut down on violations and crashes.

Additional restrictions apply regarding the age of passengers. Driving is not allowed with more than one passenger in the vehicle who is less than 21 years of age, with some exceptions. This restriction is also sensible. Driver distraction plays a significant role in violations and accidents. Limiting the number of passengers under 21 should help reduce traffic incidents and the need for drivers license restoration Michigan.

The Secretary of State watches new drivers very closely. Traffic violations and accidents can result in suspensions. A suspended driver has the right to pursue a drivers license appeal Michigan. These sensible limitations on driving should help reduce the need for drivers license reinstatement Michigan.
