Larry’s driver’s license was revoked because of 2 drunk driving convictions. Larry also had an MIP when he was younger. Larry (with a different attorney) had tried, on 2 previous occasions, to regain his driving privileges. However, Larry lost both of these previous hearings, thus failing to secure his driving privileges. It was with this background of 2 prior losses, that Larry turned to me for help in reinstating his driving privileges.
I was able to secure Larry a full (non-restricted) driver’s license. One of the keys to winning Larry’s case was emphasizing his strong support network and long period of abstinence. I emphasized these points throughout the hearing. Additionally, I submitted a favorable substance abuse evaluation and 5 very strong supporting letters.
I was able to secure Larry a full driver’s license. It should be noted that it is unusual to be granted a full driver’s license. Usually, one is first granted a restricted license and required to install an alcohol detector known as an interlock device in their car. However, because of the overwhelming strength of Larry’s case, the hearing officer granted Larry a full driver’s license.
