Practice and Preparation

We will be in contact with you as you gather documentation and we build your case to submit for a hearing. Once we've approved the documentation and the substance abuse evaluation, your documents will be sent to request a review hearing. Once the hearing is scheduled, we will provide you information related to the quesions you will be asked by your assigned hearing officer. You will go through a mock hearing with us prior to your scheduled hearing. You will know what questions to expect and how to answer them.


We help you determine your eligibility and how soon you will likely be able to restore your privileges once you're eligible. You must be able to convincingly prove that your substance use is under control, that you've remained sober, and there is a low likelihood of you using in the future.

Eligibility Date

We must determine when you are eligible to have a hearing to restore your license and also to be able to have the necessary proof to win your case. You generally will receive a letter from the Secretary of State a few weeks prior to your eligibility date. For more information on eligibility, check out Mike's blog: Driver's License Restoration - Part 1.

Length of Sobriety

There are a few different factors here: you must have a minimum 6 months of voluntary sobriety. You may need at least 12 months of sobriety if evidence for your conviction is more serious. For more information on this, you can check out Mike's blog: Driver's License Restoration - Part 1.

Ignition Interlock

If you are granted a restricted license, you will be required to have ignition interlock installed on the vehicle you will drive. Ignition interlock is used to make sure that you are sober whenever you are driving. For those that have had ignition interlock installed for a year, they can use this same appeal process to restore full driving privileges and will need to provide an Ignition Interlock final report prior to their hearing. For more on having your full license restored, you can check out Mike's blog: Driver's License Restoration - Part 4.

Ability to Provide Documentation

We help you identify which documents you need to be eligible to restore your privileges and what documents you will need to be able to retain in order to guarantee a win in your case. If you haven't been collecting documentation so far or have difficulty getting supporting documentation, we can help you identify the best path to obtain what you need.

Required Documents

Request for Administrative review/hearing

This is the official document that will need to be completed and submitted to request your hearing. This is a thorough examination of your past use, convictions, sobriety and other information. We work at your side to make sure that this is completed accurately and in a way that will best represent your situation.

Substance Abuse evaluation

You are required to submit a substance abuse evaluation from a licensed substance abuse counselor. We will walk you through this process and help you setup your evaluation which includes a diagnosis, prognosis and recommendations based on your evaluation and history.

ignition interlock final report

For applicants that are or were required to use an ignition interlock, a final report will be required. The report most be dated within 30 days of the Request for Administrative Hearing. This report will contain any violations or issues while using the interlock device.

support letters

You will need to provide 3 to 6 letters of support. These are usually written by family, friends, mentors, employers, sponsors, etc. We will help you identify who can best provide the letters for you and things that should be reflected in your support letters if possible.

sobriety documentation

When and where possible, you will need to provide as much documentation as possible to help support your evidence of sobriety. This usually included documents proving you've attended AA, NA or other recovery meetings, as well as other certifications or documents that can help show you've had proven sobriety.
