Illinois license reinstatement questions.


I live out of state-can I get my license cleared in Illinois?

Posted by John Callahan | Oct 17, 2013 | 0 Comments

As a license reinstatement lawyer in Illinois, I have several clients ask me if they can get their license cleared in Illinois while they live out of state.  Several of these clients who live out of state originally thought that they had to fill out the out-of-state hearing packet and submit that in writing to the Secretary of State in Illinois.  This is not true. If you live outside of Illinois but you are unable to renew your drivers license in the state that you currently live, you do not need to fill out the out-of-state hearing packet that the Illinois Secretary of State provides.  Rather, the best way to clear your license in Illinois so that you can renew your drivers license in your home state is to have a formal administrative hearing in the state of Illinois with an attorney who knows how to get your license back.

I had a very high success rate in obtaining clearance of my clients driving privileges over the past decade when they have flown in from out-of-state. If you're looking to clear license in Illinois so that you can renew your drivers license in a different state, contact me with any questions you have.
