Driver Responsibility Fees for Misdemeanors and Points in Michigan

If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor traffic or vehicle offense or have accumulated points on your driver's license, you may be required to pay driver responsibility fees to the Michigan Department of Treasury. A suspended license may result should you fail to pay these fees in a timely manner. When convicted of a DUI-related driving offense, the criminal penalties are severe enough on their own; combine this with additional driver responsibility fees which can go on for several years following conviction, and it can be stressful both emotionally and financially. Our Michigan DUI defense firm will work aggressively to defend you against a wrongful conviction and unnecessary fees, so take action immediately. We are available to assist you today, whether you have been arrested or charged with OUIL, drunk driving, reckless driving, OWI, driving on a suspended license, or any other charge related to the operation of a motor vehicle.

Michigan Driver Responsibility Fees Categories 1 and 2

When points have accumulated on your driver's license because of traffic violations such as failure to stop at a red light or speeding, you may be required to pay a driver responsibility fee. Within two years of conviction, accumulating 7 points on your license will result in a $100 fee. Should you accumulate 15 points, the fees will increase to $500.

The second type of driver responsibility fees includes those you are required to pay if convicted on charges of driving while intoxicated. For instance, an individual who is convicted of OWI (operating while intoxicated) may be required to pay a $1,000 fee for two consecutive years. If you are charged with reckless driving or under 21 operating with alcohol present, a conviction could result in $500 driver responsibility fees. Ultimately, not paying these fees on time may result in suspension of your driver's license, which means even more fines/fees in order to have your driving privileges reinstated.
