Can I get a Drivers license in Indiana if one was revoked in Michigan 18 years ago?
My license was revoked in Michigan 18 years ago due to 3 alcohol related offenses. Can I get a license in Indiana where I now live without having to get one in Michigan, I mean reverse the revocation? I tried to get it in 2004 but the reviewing officer would not let me get a license. He said I was untruthful on my application which was not true. I had met all the requirements, AA meetings. Letters from people stating that they had not seen me drink since 2000 and a letter from my sponsor.05/16/2017 | Category: Drivers License | State: Indiana | #37270
