If you are a motorist in Michigan whose driver’s license has been suspended, you may be curious as to whether you would be eligible for a hardship appeal. First of all, there are only certain suspensions that may be eligible for an appeal. Second, you must successfully make the argument that you are experiencing a true hardship because of the fact that you do not have a valid driver’s license.
What is a hardship? A hardship may exist when you cannot get to and from work, school, or other important or essential meetings/destinations. However, it is important to note that even if you win a hardship appeal, the license you receive is not a regular license, but instead one that makes it possible for you to drive only for specific purposes, such as to work, school, or for medical appointments. Violation of the terms of your hardship license will result in a loss of your driving privilege completely.
Whether you may appeal for a hardship depends on the reason for suspension of your driver’s license
