You don't know Michigan.
First suspension: 1 year
Second suspension: 5 years
In neither case is the license certain to be restored. The Secretarty of State must be convinced the behaviors or circumstances have changed. Lifetime revokations are possible, and driving under one can get you escalating jail rime.
Also, minors who have done something serious with a vehicle like property damage, a DUI, injuring or killing someone can be tried as adults and face the same penalties. A vehicular homicide here can bring a 2nd degree murder charge. Michigan has convicted 11 year olds of 1st degtee murder.
I'm assuming you mean 1st time your license is suspended, it is suspended for one year. Second time, for five years. But as I pointed out, people STILL drive with a suspended license. According to blotter reports all over my state, this happens a lot and most receive a citation ( a ticket ) or, basically a slap on the wrist. Just telling someone they aren't allowed to drive doesn't necessarily mean they will listen or obey.
