Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. As long as you have complied with all the conditions imposed, you can obtain your license back, if the time period has passed. You would need to pay a fee to reinstate your license and obtain a clearance on it, so the suspension is waived. You can go to the clerk of court or the DMV to pay the fees and get it reinstated, so you can legally drive.
Please let me know if you have any follow up questions or need any clarification on something which I stated above.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
