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

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

The clinic, which is open to all Michigan residents, will take place on Friday, Sept. 16 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Michigan Works!, 1209 S. Garfield, Suite E.

Residents who did not register for the clinic ahead of time can walk in between 10 a.m. and 4 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 license can be restored. The Road to Restoration clinics, staffed by MDOS, the Department of 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 with numerous partner organizations including DTE Energy, Miller Canfield Law Firm, Detroit Justice Center, and United Way, as well as location partners.

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 Michigan.gov/RoadtoRestoration.
