The Secretary of State license reinstatement hearing process is often viewed by Petitioners as an intimidating or confusing process.  However, in our experience, it is typically a relatively straightforward proceeding if a client is advised properly and is ultimately prepared for their hearing on the scheduled date. 


In various consultations, many clients have asked questions that revolve around certain misconceptions or myths.  In the following pages, we discuss several of these concerns in an effort to provide accurate information about the general process of license reinstatement.  Every case is unique and a Petitioner should consult with a qualified attorney prior to proceeding with a Secretary of State hearing.
