Illinois license reinstatement questions.


How long must I be active in Alcoholics Anonymous before my license reinstatement hearing?

Posted by John Callahan | Feb 21, 2015 | 0 Comments

There are several categories that a potential license reinstatement client can be categorized in prior to their license reinstatement hearing with the Secretary of State in Illinois. The highest risk level, level III-dependent, is typically found after a person has been convicted for his or her third DUI arrest. One can be a level III-dependent at any point if they believe they are an alcoholic. Basically, if you admit that you are an alcoholic, you are a level III-dependent.
 One of the requirements that the Illinois Secretary of State requires prior to a formal license reinstatement hearing to reinstate your Illinois drivers license is that a level III-dependent candidate must show that they have been active in Alcoholics Anonymous or other support group for a minimum of six months. If the client cannot provide proof that they have been active in AA for six months at a minimum, there is no sense in even applying or proceeding to the hearing.
 How do you prove that you have been active in your support group or Alcoholics Anonymous? The Secretary of State actually has the forms that you can download or you can actually have your support group members write a personal letter. As a license reinstatement lawyer, I have helped hundreds of people get back their license and I believe strongly and I also encourage my clients that the form provided from the Secretary of State is the best bet if you're looking to clear your license.
 If you need help clearing your Illinois license or need to have a formal or informal administrative hearing with the Secretary of State after being convicted of a DUI for driving under the influence of alcohol charge, feel free to contact drivers license lawyer John W Callahan at anytime.
