Farmer Endorsement License DUI

In Michigan, you may qualify for an "F" or Farmer endorsement on your driver's license if you operate agricultural vehicles or farm machinery such as tractors, plows, or harvesters. This endorsement allows farmers to operate heavy equipment and larger vehicles that are used in the course of farming without obtaining a full-blown commercial drivers license (CDL). However, if you are convicted of drunk or drugged driving, you could face license suspension or revocation, which would also jeopardize the "F" endorsement on your license.

Michigan Secretary of State

In Michigan, the office of the Secretary of State handles everything related to drivers licenses. Section 257.312f of the Michigan Vehicle Code says that the Secretary of State may deny an application for endorsement or cancel a current endorsement based on a license suspension or cancellation that is related to a drunk driving conviction.

Drunk Driving While Operating Farm Equipment

It is also important to note that you can be arrested and charged with drunk driving if you are found operating a tractor, plow, or other farm vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Even if you are on private property at the time of driving, law enforcement officials can stop you and conduct an investigation if they have reason to believe that you are driving while impaired or intoxicated.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Patrick Barone is the ONLY choice for DUI defense. He was realistic from the start and made it a point to look at my case before taking my money. As a business owner, when I think of attorneys, I think of the "shark infested waters. Patrick is a shark alright, but his prey is not the client; it's justice for his client. Ten stars Patrick!!

★★★★★
Attorney Patrick Barone was very helpful and helped me understand the charge and sentence absolutely clearly. He also guided me through step by step helping me form a statement. His instructions were clear and detailed. It was obvious he cared about me understanding every important detail within my case. I would absolutely recommend this defense firm to anyone in need.

The Barone Defense Firm is the firm I recommend. They are truly concerned about the person, not just the legal issue, but the person as well. They are the most knowledgeable defense firm that I am aware of, having actually written the book on DWI Defense. If you are faced with a DWI you will not find a more professional and skilled law firm. But, most importantly, they care about how the accused individual recovers his or her life when the case is complete. Very remarkable group of lawyers. William H.
