The Scenario:  You’re now living in a state other than Michigan. You don’t have a drivers license because it was revoked in Michigan due to alcohol and/or drug convictions.

You may be wondering which state actually issues a drivers license assuming you get everything cleared up? Any Michigan drivers license attorney will tell you that  you will need to apply for a drivers license in your current state of residence.
