Driver licence for J-1 visa?? (Detroit)

Hi everybody,
I'm Laura, a French grad student.
I'm going to Detroit suburb (Birmingham) to do an internship of 6 months starting April Protected content .
The company that has hired me told me that the common transportation is very poor in the area and that I would really need a car to get around.
Problem: I don't have a driving licence (in France).
Does my J-1 Visa enable me to get a Michigan Driver Licence? Do you think I can begin the process of getting one when I arrive, or do I have to wait (and if so how long?), or if I can't have one at all?
Thank you by advance for your answer guys!
