Driver's License Reinstatement in Illinois is a lengthy process that takes determination, preparation, and patience. Due to budgetary issues as well as an increased number of people applying for license reinstatement in Illinois in 2015, the average time it takes from application to result has increased from 75 days to 140 days.
What this means is that if you apply for your hearing today, you will most likely have your hearing in about 60 days. Then the Secretary of State will take another 60-90 days to reach their decision and provide you the results in writing. Total time from application to result is 140-150 days for a formal administrative hearing for a DUI conviction in Illinois.
Should you apply for an informal hearing with the Secretary of State the results may arrive a bit faster. You can have your hearing in approximately one week with the results coming in the mail in about 90-100 days. Total time on this is about 100 days.
I do not assist people with the written out of state packet but from what I have been told the wait times on that are well over 10 months.
