Illinois license reinstatement – problematic drinker

Posted by John Callahan | Apr 13, 2015 | 0 Comments

An Illinois license reinstatement lawyer can help you reinstate your driving privileges in the state of Illinois after being revoked for a driving under the influence of alcohol conviction. What I find in my practice is that most people who have to apply for a formal administrative hearing with the Illinois Secretary of State are typically applying for a hardship license after their second DUI conviction/arrest. 90% of the people I represent who have been arrested for two DUI charges are considered a level two significant risk level. What this means by definition is that a level two significant risk is considered a problematic drinker.
 One of the questions that all of my clients will be asked at the formal administrative hearing is whether or not they believe they have abused and or developed a problem with their drinking. Most people believe that the answer to this question should be no because it makes them sound like an alcoholic. But if a level two significant risk client answers no to that question, he or she will be denied because, again by definition a level two significant risk is a problematic drinker.
 The Secretary of State will then follow up with what was the cause of the problematic drinking and this answer should not be that they received two DUI charges. A better and more logical answer is that the continued abuse of alcohol led to the problematic drinking due to peer pressure, stress, or some other reason.
 If you have been arrested for a driving under the influence of alcohol charge or if your license is revoked in Illinois and you need to obtain a hearing with the Secretary of State to reinstate your driving privileges, feel free to contact license reinstatement lawyer John W Callahan
