Driver’s license restoration clinic to assist Alpena-area residents this week

The Michigan Department of State (MDOS), Department of the Attorney General, and community partners will host a Road to Restoration clinic in Alpena this week as part of a continued joint effort to aid Michigan drivers seeking to restore their driving privileges.

The clinic will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 14 at the Alpena Event Complex, 701 Woodward Avenue.

Residents who did not already register can walk in to the clinic between noon and 6 p.m. to obtain information about their driving record and find out what they need to do to regain driving privileges.

In 2021, new state laws lifted license suspensions for drivers who failed to pay tickets or court fines or failed to appear in court for certain non-moving and other violations. However, many individuals must take additional measures before their licenses are restored. The Road to Restoration clinics, staffed by MDOS, the Department of the Attorney General and volunteer attorneys, help residents determine how they can restore their licenses and, when possible, provide the services they need to do so on site.

The clinics are held in partnership with numerous organizations including DTE Energy, the Law Firm of Miller Canfield, Detroit Justice Center and United Way.

Michiganders who believe they may qualify to have their license reinstated can get more information or sign up for an upcoming clinic near them at
