The requirement for the license at issue is that you must be 'of good moral character.' That's why the board said that a DUI is a case-by-case basis.
If you only have one DUI on your criminal history, you completed the requirements the judge gave you, and you are honest about it on your license application, it probably won't be enough to disqualify you from getting a license.

I am not licensed to practice in Michigan, so out of respect to any experienced licensing attorney from MI that responds, I would defer to his or her answer. However, my answer is that it probably depends on the facts of the case and the person's prior history, if any, besides the DUI.
I can't seeing you being denied for a cosmetology license.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
