Illinois license reinstatement questions.


Do I need a BAIID device on my restricted driving permit?

Posted by John Callahan | Feb 25, 2015 | 0 Comments

I have represented hundreds of clients at Illinois Secretary of State formal administrative hearings. That is the long name for license reinstatement. If you have been arrested for multiple DUIs in the past, your license might be revoked in Illinois. A question that has come up is whether or not a person needs to install the breathalyzer device in their car while on a restricted driving permit.
 Several people are telling me that they have lawyers who are promising that they will not have to have the BAIID device installed. While I like to take credit for anything I can as far as good news for my clients, I have nothing to do with whether or not the device needs to be installed as it is a statutory requirement or it is not required at all. The lawyer has nothing to do with preventing the BAIID device from being installed.
 The Illinois Secretary of State will analyze the driving record of the petitioner at a formal administrative hearing. If the record requires the BAIID device, then the person is BAIID mandatory. If the driving record does not require the BAIID device, then a simple restricted driving permit will be issued or EVEN possibly full reinstatement. 
 If you have any questions about the license reinstatement process, you can contact my office to discuss the reason that you are revoked and what it will take to get your license back from the Secretary of State.
