How do I get a hardship license in Michigan?
I live in Michigan and just had my license revoked because I got a DUI—but now I don’t have any way to get to school. Am I able to get a hardship license?

Sorry to hear about your DUI—but hopefully we can help you figure out whether a hardship license may be a solution to your situation.
You can get a hardship license in Michigan by petitioning the circuit court in the county of your arrest or violation. You will need to show that not having a license is impacting your ability to go to school or work or perform other required tasks.
That means if you have someone else in your life who could feasibly drive you, you aren’t eligible for a hardship license—you must prove that not having a license is truly a hardship.
Best of luck to you—and we hope this helps!
