How do you get your driving privileges reinstated after a DUI?

Posted by John Callahan | Oct 07, 2014 | 0 Comments

I have been representing clients charged with DUI in Illinois, around the Schaumburg and Chicago areas for over 17 years. What most people do not realize is that when you are facing a DUI charge, you are also facing possible suspension and revocation of your driving privileges.
 To have your driving privileges reinstated, a driver convicted of DUI must do the following: have a clear driving record other than the revocation sanction; undergo an alcohol and drug evaluation; complete an alcohol and drug remedial education program; appear before a Secretary of State hearing officer and demonstrate during the hearing that public safety will not be endangered if driving privileges are restored; file proof of financial responsibility prior to reinstatement, pay a $500 reinstatement fee, pass the driver's license exam (written, vision and driving) and pay the appropriate application fee. At the hearing, the officer will consider the seriousness of the offense, the offender's overall driving record and the driver's remedial efforts.
 A reinstatement becomes valid when it is entered on the driver's record in the Secretary of State's office. For more information about how to deal with the consequences of a DUI, contact our office to speak with an experienced defense attorney.
