New reinstatement law affects 2nd time DUI offenders

Posted by John Callahan | Feb 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

As a license reinstatement lawyer in Illinois for the past 18 years, there have been few changes in the law for most of the time frame.  That all changed on January 1, 2016, when the new license reinstatement law went into effect.  There are many changes including allowing people formerly classified as lifetime bans to now obtain a restricted driving permit and / or full license reinstatement. Today, however, we will discuss how the new law affects those people with two convictions on their driving record.

The good news… Before the new law went into effect, a person with 2 dui convictions would have to serve one year hard time and be unable to obtain any driving relief at all through the secretary of state administrative process.  Now, the hard time requirement of one year is gone.  A person with two DUI convictions is now eligible to obtain a restricted driving permit immediately.

The bad news…  Before the new law went into effect, a person with two DUI convictions would have to serve 12 months on the BAIID restricted driving permit.  After that, the petitioner would be eligible for full reinstatement within one year.  Now, a person with two convictions will not be eligible for full reinstatement for five years.  This means that the petitioner with two DUI convictions will have to be on a restricted driving permit for 5 years with the breath device installed.

If you have multiple DUI convictions and are looking to obtain license reinstatement in Illinois, you should obtain an experienced driver's license lawyer to help you obtain a successful result for you.  Feel free to contact license reinstatement lawyer, John W Callahan anytime day or night by calling 1-877-469-4535 to help you clear your driving privileges in Illinois.
