I have three DUI arrests and want to get my license back

Posted by John Callahan | Jul 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

As a DUI license reinstatement lawyer, I have very often come across clients with three DUI arrests in their background. Many of them have completed the level two significant risk treatment program when they come into my office. While it is possible to have had three DUI arrests and still proceed to a formal administrative hearing with the Secretary of State of Illinois under the level two significant risk treatment category. More often than not it is advisable to proceed as a level three dependent. The level three client has additional requirements from the other categories in that a person who is a level III category must complete three letters from friends and family documenting estimates for 12 months and must complete three letters from support group such as AA indicating that he or she has been active in the support group program for a minimum of six months. This is not required of a Level two – significant petitioner.

The most important thing is to review the drinking pattern alleged by the petitioner. Since the petitioner indicates that he only drinks one or two times a week and less than a few beers it is highly unlikely that the Secretary of State will believe that he is dependent on alcohol. Conversely, a person who is a level two significant risk probably should not want to testify that they drink seven days a week, ten beers per day. The pattern must fit the category.

When proceeding to a DUI license reinstatement hearing you have to remember that you're drinking pattern must fix with the level of risk classification for the Secretary of State.
