Illinois license reinstatement-should I move out-of-state?

Posted by John Callahan | Nov 17, 2015 | 0 Comments

As many of you know I have practiced license reinstatement law in Illinois for the past 18 years. Many people call me every day asking how they should get their license reinstated after being revoked for a DUI conviction. One of the more interesting questions that I am asked is whether or not a person is allowed to move out-of-state from Illinois before they have their actual hearing. For example, if a person currently lives in Illinois but will move to another state to obtain a job or new livelihood by the time their formal administrative hearing will happen, this can affect how quickly they can obtain full reinstatement of their driving privileges.
 I have had clients that have a applied for a license reinstatement hearing with the Secretary of State while they lived in Illinois who would have been mandatory restricted driving permit petitioners. Instead, when these people moved outside of the State of Illinois, we were then able to apply for full reinstatement of their driving privileges because a restricted driving permit would not apply to them. This is not skirting the system in any way but it certainly gets those clients up and driving faster than if they had lived in Illinois.
 If you're looking to have a successful result with your license reinstatement process or if your license is currently revoked in the State of Illinois for a driving under the influence of alcohol conviction, feel free to contact license reinstatement lawyer John W Callahan at anytime.
