DMV stated all I need was a grant of approval
From probation for my license back
Court clerk states they have no power but expressed empathy and told me to ask a lawyer

You agreed to abide by the conditions of probation when accepting the plea deal. The only one who can override the PO is the sentencing judge. Speak to your attorney about making an application to the sentencing judge.

You can hire an attorney who can file a motion with the judge asking for a change in the terms and conditions of probation. Please note that some of what you have described must be incorrect. If this is your second DWI conviction within 4.5 years, than your revocation should be for one year.
