License reinstatement RDP hardship requirements

Posted by John Callahan | May 01, 2015 | 0 Comments

As a lawyer who has represented hundreds if not thousands of clients charged with DUI in Chicago and the surrounding area, I am often asked by my clients if they lose their license for a DUI conviction, can they get their license back or get some form of driving relief. One such form of relief is a Restricted Driving Permit (RDP).
 Your eligibility to receive a Restricted Driving Permit during the first year of a revocation is limited to hardship purposes only. During this “hard time” period you may only apply for an RDP to be used during the remainder of the revocation for employment, medical or educational purposes. An “undue hardship” must exist, such as extreme difficulty getting to and from work, school or regularly scheduled medical visits. It also applies to an inability to fulfill a requirement for on-the-job driving. There must be no reasonable alternative means of transportation available to the petitioner. An undue hardship does not exist simply because the petitioner's driving privileges are revoked.
 For more information on the requirements of a Restricted Driving Permit or how to have your license reinstated, contact our office to speak with an attorney experienced in license reinstatement.
