Reinstating a revoked license after 3 OUIL convictions.
I had my first OUIL in 2006, second and third in 2011. I have been sober since 10/12/11, completed 2 inpatient alcohol rehabilitations, did 7 1/2 months in Oakland Co. jail, and completed 4 years of felony probation. I need to start working on obtaining my drivers license again. I was told to wait until 1 year after the completion of probation with 1 A.A. meeting weekly, a psychological exam, and letters of recommendation from numerous sources. Is there any other advice that can be given to make sure when I go in front of the board I'm not denied?

My smart start malfunctioned and the company disconnected it. This caused my license to be suspended.
I had a DUI in Oct 2010 and another in Jan 2011 and went through a sobriety program which I finished in record time and have remained 100% sober since. I have not had one drop of alcohol in almost 3 years. One of the requirements of the program was to have an interlock device on my car. Well I was driving about a year ago and the device failed with an error message so I called the company. They told me to drive to their location, they said they had to disconnect and reconnect it and it would be fine they would just document it. However, as a result of this the Secretary of State suspended my license as a result. They believe I disconnected the Smart Start even though I have record from Smart Start that they disconnected it. My license is now suspended for another 2 years.
First I recommend that you hire an attorney. Second if you wish to handle this matter without an attorney make sure you...
What are the chances of getting your license back?
My son got a DUI in jan 2013 and was off probation in July 2014. He still has the interlock device. He is applying to the state to get his license back and the annual report from his device shows a .03 back in July. He was able to start it two days later without it being serviced. Does that mean it was a false positive? Should he even try to get his license back ? Will that be a guaranteed denial ? He doesn't care if the keep the machine in he just wants to drive where he wants and have less restrictions. He indicates he hasn't drank since his arrest. Sounds like if he is going to submit the paperwork to the state he will have to admit to drinking.
I would kindly but strongly recommend your son consult with a lawyer who handles a lot of AHS cases (used to be called...

How does a restricted license after an OWAI conviction work?
My questions involve a restricted license following an alcohol related conviction. First, if the license is only for school, work and medical purposes how can you fill your car with gas? Second, if you plead guilty to a local ordinance called Operating While Ability Impaired or "OWAI," do you need to get an SR-22? Third, do I need to take any steps other than pay the reinstatement fee in order to get my license back after the period of restriction? I really appreciate any advice that you may offer. Thanks!
Get your gas filled on the way to work or on the way home. I am not familiar with the firm
What charges can I possibly face and how can i avoid jail time?
- I was pulled over for DUI. - BAC results showed 0.11 and I was arrested on spot and kept in custody for 3-4 hours. - There were no accidents or property damage, just i drove over a big stone and that caused my car to skid a bit. - I got my driver's license 6 months ago and it is clean, and I have no criminal record. - The court would be Farmington Hills, Michigan
