Losing my driver’s license in Illinois

Posted by John Callahan | May 16, 2016 | 0 Comments

Losing your driver's license can make things extremely difficult; a revoked license or a suspended license can leave people in situation where they're unable to drive to work, get groceries from the store, visit friends and family, or do other basic every-day tasks.  Because driving is so important, it's important that you go through all the steps necessary to make sure you get your license reinstated.

In Illinois, licenses can be reinstated in one of two ways: through a formal hearing, or through an informal hearing.  Informal hearings are for people with minor or first-time offenses, and formal hearings are for people with multiple DUI convictions or traffic tickets that resulted in a fatality.  However, “informal” shouldn't be taken to mean “unimportant.”  In both formal and informal hearings, your license reinstatement is dependent on coming in to the hearing well-prepared.  There is important work to be done both before and after the hearing to make sure that your driving rights are restored.  Reinstatement is especially thorny when you're getting around a DUI charge – a full restoration of driving rights could potentially come with court-mandated recovery programs or coursework.

This is where most people need help: experienced license reinstatement lawyers like the attorneys at John W. Callahan Ltd. have helped hundreds of people reinstate their driver's licenses with the minimum amount of penalties from the court.  The best way to make sure you get back your license and avoid duplicating the time-consuming drug or alcohol education programs is to get professional help to make sure that you're completely prepared for your hearing.

If you are looking to have a successful outcome for your license reinstatement hearing or if you think that you might get revoked due to a potential DUI conviction you should call the license reinstatement law firm of John W Callahan, Ltd.
